The Stephen Gately Trust is a company limited by guarantee not having a share capital, registered in Dublin, Ireland 
with a registered company Number 524626. Registered Charity number CHY20660

Following Stephens tragic death on 10th October 2009 at the age of only 33 from a undiagnosed heart condition the Gately family underwent extensive medical tests to ascertain if they had inherited the same medical conditions or had any other underlying conditions. It was confirmed that Stephens only sister Michelle has Long QT Syndrome (LQTS) and is currently undergoing genetic testing and receiving treatment.

Michelle decided in memory of Stephen to set up the “Stephen Gately Trust” to raise awareness of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS) and to hopefully prevent other families having to go through the pain of losing a loved one. The money raised will be used to raise awareness of SADS and provide medical and other needed equipment to Hospitals, GPS, Schools, Colleges and Sports Clubs.

In Loving Memory of Stephen
