5KMAY/Run for Heroes

Essex & Herts Air Ambulance are encouraging supporters to take part in Run for Heroes/5KMAY in partnership with JustGiving this May.

5KMay is a challenge which began in 2020 by the community completing a challenge of 5K in distance, whether that be running, cycling, rolling or hopping followed by donating £5 and nominating 5 people to do the same, with the challenge being inclusive meaning anyone can take part. Last year, the challenge raised over £7million for NHS charities and we hope that keen supporters within our counties would like to take part for us.

5KMAY launches on 1st May 2021 and can be completed anytime within the month.

Natasha Robertson Fundraising Manager at EHAAT said “This is a great and easy way for people to support their local air ambulance. Whether running, walking, cycling or swimming is your thing we would love you to take advantage that we can now start getting together in small groups and have some fun this May in aid of EHAAT.
