Can you outrun an ambulance for charity?

North Devon Gazette

The 2022 ‘Outrun an Ambulance’ virtual event has been launched by the South Western Ambulance Charity.Â

People in the South West of England are being asked to rise to the challenge and support the region’s ambulance workers, by conquering the mileage an ambulance covers on an average shift while responding to people in urgent need.Â

The South Western Ambulance Charity, the charitable arm of the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT), first launched the ‘Outrun an Ambulance’ fundraiser in 2021 and generated nearly £12,000 of vital donations. Â

Money raised for the South Western Ambulance Charity as part of this year’s ‘Outrun an Ambulance’ challenge will support SWASFT staff and volunteers by funding well-being enhancements at local stations throughout the region. Â

Fundraisers can choose the area they want to support and discover the mileage target options for their own fundraising challenge. For more information and to set-up a personal fundraising page visit www.outrunanambulance.co.ukÂ
