Join our 5K Fun Run and dress up for a chance to win a Helicopter flight from Denham


Thursday 4th August 2011

Run, conga, skip or walk! Take part in our 5k Fun Run in Regent’s Park on 18th September.  The run is for people of all ages and levels and there is no minimum sponsorship, we just ask that you raise as much as you can. 

Fancy dress is encouraged, but not necessary, for this event and we are offering prizes for the best dressed, including a flight in the helicopter for the winner.  The flight will be from Denham airfield to the helipad on top of the Royal London Hospital in time for it to start its daily shift.  The lucky winner will also be given a tour of the helipad and will have the opportunity to meet our team who perform life saving operations at the roadside daily.

Over 250 people signed up last year to show their support, raising over £10,000 and, with your support, we are hoping to increase on that this year.   Imogen Hicks, a patient of London’s Air Ambulance who was involved in a horrific motorcycle accident which resulted in her having her leg amputated, showed up and ran the race to show her support.  Imogen was one of four of our patients to run.

Registration is £14 per runner and includes a London’s Air Ambulance running vest, a bottle of water, a timing chip and a medal.
