Amy’s 25 Challenges

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity supporter, Amy Jones, is undertaking 25 challenges in 2016, in support of the charity's Air25, 25th anniversary year.

Amy says: "Please support me in doing my 25 challenges during 2016. My challenges are a combination of mental and physical challenges. These challenges are not coming easy to me, I have a fear of heights, speed, I don’t go on rollercoasters as my fear  is just too bad! I don’t like being in water unless my feet can touch the floor, I hate getting cold, dirty and wet!  I’m far from being an adrenaline junkie!

"I’ve always tried to do a bit of running but between having children it’s always faded, I started a couch to 10k the end of May 2015 and have managed to carry on from this. The London Marathon will be my first Marathon!

"In between my training I am bringing up a family of four young children and working a part time job with a husband who’s working full time, every free minute that I’m not running around after children or working then I’m training! This is no easy task!

"I am funding all challenges myself so every single penny donated goes straight to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity. Any donation is gratefully received no matter how big or small, every single penny goes towards keeping these angels in the sky and saving lives."
