On your marks, get set, FLY!

As registration for this year’s Great Midlands Fun Run opens Midlands Air Ambulance aims to double its team entry from last year.

In celebration of its 20th anniversary the Charity is launching an appeal for 200 supporters to walk, jog or run the 8.5 mile course on Sunday 5th June.

“To celebrate Midlands Air Ambulance’s 20th birthday we thought why not get a couple of hundred people to cross the finish line with us?” says Stef Langford Brown, Fundraising Manager at Midlands Air Ambulance.

“By doubling our team entry we hope to not only raise extra funds but also increase awareness of the publicly funded Charity.”

Each runner, jogger and walker will receive a newly designed Midlands Air Ambulance t-shirt to wear during the Fun Run.

The 200 Fun Run runners are each being asked to raise £100 in sponsorship, bringing the fundraising total to £20,000. To join the team call Stef on 0800 840 20 40 or visit our events page.
