We Need Your Help...

To kickstart our ‘Air30’ 30th anniversary year in 2021, join us on our New Year New You challenge and take on one of four distances to raise vital funds to support our lifesaving service. It’s a great way to help our charity and get fit at the same time!

Your Mission...

Choose one of the four distances or and decide whether to walk, run, swim, cycle (or a combination of) to achieve your chosen mileage within 30 days.

You can either take part as an individual or as a team – family members, friends or colleagues and there’s no age limit! You don’t have to be together to undertake your mission, just log your miles as you go using our handy form found in this pack.

The distances have been chosen as they represent the miles between each of our three airbases:

Tatenhill to RAF Cosford: 27 miles – route helimed09

RAF Cosford to Strensham: 40 miles – route helimed03

Strensham to Tatenhill: 54 miles – route helimed06

Or you can take on the Helicopter Challenger, the full 121 miles, which is the distance between all three airbases as the helicopter flies.

If you raise £75 in donations as an individual, or £100 as a team, you will receive a medal to remember your achievement.

Get Involved

Once you’ve decided your distance and whether you’re taking part as an individual or as a team, if you haven’t done so already, you can sign up below

You will be assigned a team captain, who is a member of the aircrew, who will email you regularly with tips and advice throughout your challenge.

Decide when to start your 30-day Air30 Airbase Challenge. You can complete it any time to suit you between 1st January and 31st May 2021.

The cost to take part is just:

£5 – individuals

£10 for a team of up to four people

Please note, participants complete the activities at their own risk.
