New Year, New Challenge!

The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance has the perfect opportunity for those looking for a New Year challenge – places in the Brighton 10K on Sunday 9th April 2017! Don't miss out on the opportunity to achieve a personal goal and soak up the fantastic atmosphere in the glorious setting of Brighton, whilst raising funds for a great cause.

Last year, Nicki Mason joined the charity's Brighton 10K team after her 12 year old son was airlifted to a London major trauma centre, having suffered a fractured skull when he fell from cliffs.

Nicki said: "After everything this amazing charity did for Archie, I wanted to give something back to say thank you. Being part of the charity's team and experiencing the atmosphere was amazing. Having Archie there cheering me on with my family and friends is something I'll never forget!"

All team members will be invited to a pre-race meeting where John Feeney from Pure Sports Performance will be present to answer your questions, along with the opportunity to meet the charity's crew and have a tour of the helicopter (subject to medical emergencies). Runners will also receive support and advice from the charity's fundraising team and a personalised running vest.

Head of Community Engagement, Lauren Elphick, said: "We would be delighted to welcome people to our team! We don't just offer a running place – we offer an experience to remember. Our cheer squads will be there on the day to keep you motivated! We will also be waiting in the finish tent to give you a heroes welcome, with well deserved post-race refreshments and sports massage available."
