Race4Life he­li­copter ride for heart man

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Anaru Young was told he wouldn’t reach the age of 30.

The Mt Al­bert res­i­dent was 24 when we was di­ag­nosed with a rare heart con­di­tion called anoma­lous left coro­nary artery from the pul­monary artery.

Al­though his health af­fects his abil­ity to func­tion, Young still has a pos­i­tive out­look and love for ad­ven­ture. He has been in­volved with the Race4Life trust for three years, which ful­fils the wishes of pal­lia­tive care pa­tients.

In 2015 Young was given the op­por­tu­nity to have his wish of go­ing away with his sib­lings for his 30th birth­day come true.

On March 22, the an­nual Race for

Life event was held at Hamp­ton Downs Race­way and Young en­joyed a ride in a he­li­copter.
