Story

Our incredible East of England Ambulance Service staff and volunteers really do go 'the extra mile' to keep us all safe, day in, day out. Can you go the extra mile for them by taking on and conquering the Outrun an Ambulance challenge in 2024?

Own this challenge and do it your way!

You can walk, run, cycle, swim, scoot, paddle or ride anything that is self-propelled. Do it on your own, with friends or as part of a team. Set your own time-frame for your challenge but aim to complete it within 3 months.

STEP 1: CHOOSE A DISTANCE from the Ambulance Resource list below:

Step 2: DECIDE HOW you want to do your mileage (i.e. run, walk, cycle etc..), set your time-frame (maximum 3 months) and plan to either go it alone or recruit your team.

Step 3: PLAN YOUR FUNDRAISING. Set up your own JustGiving page (to include your mileage and timeframe) and email charitablefunds@eastamb.nhs.uk for your Fundraising Pack.

Step 4: GO FOR IT! Everyone who completes their Outrun an Ambulance challenge and raises at least £1 will receive a special Certificate of Thanks. Those fundraising heroes who complete their challenge and raise £100 or more will also be sent a bespoke medal.

Your donations from the Outrun an Ambulance challenge will be used to provide enhanced facilities and wellbeing support for our East of England Ambulance Service staff and volunteers.

Please share your progress on social media using the hashtag #Icanoutrunanambulance

THANK YOU for your support and good luck with your Outrun an Ambulance 2024 challenge.
