Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s avid supporters took to the picturesque public footpaths of Worcestershire to help raise funds for the rapid response emergency service.
Walk4Life, an event which celebrated its 22nd year took place with hundreds of walkers, ramblers, joggers and runners from across the county enjoying the Worcestershire countryside.
Participants helped ‘Pound the Bounds’ through Rock, Bewdley, near Kidderminster, by taking on a variety of distances from a three-mile family treasure trail to a marathon 26-mile trek. Registration fees and donations raised on the day will help to make lifesaving missions possible for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s critical care service. £4,500 was raised for the local lifesaving service, making six missions possible – one via air ambulance and five via the service’s critical care cars.
Ian Wilson from Rock Village Hall Committee led the volunteers who ran the event. He said: “From those who kindly volunteered their time to deliver this event, to our fundraising walkers, I’d like to say a big thank you to all for supporting Walk4Life and Midlands Air Ambulance Charity and we look forward to announcing the fundraising total with the charity soon.”
