A former footballer from Dorset is hoping to raise awareness of an illness that nearly claimed his life. Kyle Critchell spent several weeks in hospital this summer after contracting severe sepsis - when the body over-reacts to an infection.
A charity that supports Sepsis patients says it believes thousands of people die unnecessarily every year because the condition isn't recognised quickly enough.
One of Kyle's closest friends Regan Coward is joining the campaign. He used to play alongside Kyle and now runs a personal training business this weekend he's organising a sponsored walk from Dorchester to Weymouth and back as part of a day of activities.
The Sepsis Trusts believes 15,000 more lives could be saved if it's caught early enough. Kyle was lucky, others aren't.
