Story

After many years of competitive running with long and lonely training runs,
I have often seen the East Anglian Air Ambulance flying overhead and thought of what a fantastic job they are doing, coming to the aid of some poor individual in need of emergency treatment.

The response time to get to a person in a life-threatening situation is
paramount. For me, to support a service that enhances the odds of life and recovery by getting the patient to the right hospital quickly and safely made it an easy decision when being given a place to run the 2017 London Marathon.

After turning 50 last year, I completed my first ever marathon.  It wasn’t the most pleasant experience as I had been struggling with injuries beforehand and at the end I said it would be my first and last. Well, here I am again but this time I have the added incentive of running for a great cause and will hopefully be better prepared.

One day, god forbid, one of my family, friends, colleagues or associations may be in need of the Air Ambulance Service. I would like to think that I have helped in some way to keep this fantastic service up in the air and helping lives in my area.
