Your Local Air Ambulance/Children's Air Ambulance
We are proud to be partnered with this incredible charity for our 2020 event.
The Air Ambulance Service operates the national Children’s Air Ambulance and the local air ambulance services for Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland. Their vision is clear. To ensure children grow into adults, for adults to live longer and for families to stay together, as bereavement through trauma becomes rare. Each of their services works tirelessly to save lives and alleviate sickness, wherever and whenever possible.
Children’s Air Ambulance – National Service
The Children’s Air Ambulance is a national service, changing the face of paediatric and neonatal care through the high-speed transfer of critically ill babies and children and flying them from one hospital to another for specialist care.
The clinically designed helicopter provides a flying intensive care unit for babies and children.
They work with 10 NHS paediatric retrieval teams across the UK, enabling them to bring their specialist equipment on board to safely transfer their patients from one hospital to another. If a child is too sick to fly then the Children’s Air Ambulance can fly a specialist team directly to them.
They receive no funding from the government or National Lottery for our missions and rely entirely on voluntary donations to raise the £3,500 needed for every mission. Your support will help to keep hope alive for these patients and their families.
Local air ambulance services – WNDLR
Since starting their services in 2003, they now fly two local air ambulances services, serving a total of five counties: Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA), Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA)
Their critical care paramedics, doctors and pilots attend an average of ten rescue missions a day and within minutes, they can be on the ground delivering lifesaving care at road traffic collisions, sports events, and industrial accidents or for medical emergencies such as cardiac arrest, stroke or accidents in the home. The air ambulance gives people the very best chance of survival and recovery. Our helicopter can fly at 185mph and carries the very latest lifesaving equipment.
They receive no funding from the government or National Lottery for their daily missions and rely entirely on donations to raise the £1,700 we need for each rescue mission.
A virtual race is a race that can be ran at any location. You can walk, use the treadmill, run outside or participate in another race. You can run your race at your pace anywhere in the world.
