There is still time to put your best foot forward and run 10k in aid of the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance
You don’t have to be super-fit to run a 10k and you don’t even have to take it too seriously – after all, last year a knight in full armour and a playful team of a ‘doctor’, ‘nurse’ and ‘surgeon’ were among those running their local 10k in aid of our life-saving Charity. And, our oldest participant was an octogenarian – showing that anyone really can take part.
Despite being dispatched to some of the most serious 999 calls in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, our Charity is not Government funded and relies totally on the support of the community we serve to raise this money. Therefore, every penny raised by our fabulous fundraisers really does help to save lives.
Community Fundraisers Faye Nam (Lincs) and Karen Carter (Notts) said: “This year we will increase the hours that we fly meaning we will soon be operational for 24 hours a day. We need to raise £4m a year to make this possible. That is why we are appealing to more people than ever before to run their local 10k in aid of our life-saving Charity. And, it is a great way to raise money in a fun way while getting fit at the same time. We look forward to hearing from anyone who would like to run for us and take advantage of the free entry this year.”
The Lincoln 10k will take place on March 18 and the Nottingham 10k on August 12. If you sign up to either of these events through our Charity, it is free to enter. All we ask is that you pledge to raise a minimum of £75 in sponsorship which will help to support our live-saving work. We will supply you with sponsor form and posters so that you can let people know that you are running for us and gain as much sponsorship as possible.
Why not run with friends or colleagues? See who can finish in the quickest time with the slowest runner buying cakes as a forfeit? You could even run in costume. Or, run as part of a plan to get fit this year. What better motivation than a 10k run in just a few weeks’ time and the weekly training running up to it? Whatever your reason for taking part we look forward to welcoming you to our team. To take part sign up here!
If you have already signed up, don’t worry, you can still raise money for us. Simply contact us to request a sponsor form by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01522 548469. We look forward to hearing from you.
