John Taylor was a young international athlete who died tragically from a heart condition known as cardiomyopathy.

The John Taylor foundation for young athletes was created with the aim of raising awareness of this condition, and assisting young athletes.
It is a registered charity, 1101008.

Funds are raised through a variety of means: many fell races donate some or all of their proceeds to the Foundation. (One of the first events was “John’s Run”, a fell race in February 2003 on the Penistone moors much loved by John and other local fell runners).

If you would like to donate to help fund young athletes, we have a JustGiving page that you can reach using https://www.justgiving.com/johntaylorfoundation
