Thank you for your support and patience during the build up to this year’s return of the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Motorcycle Run. We know you have all been eagerly awaiting the day along with us.
However, It is with a heavy heart we now inform you that following the very sad announcement of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, this year’s Motorcycle Run and Harwich Family Fun day has been formally cancelled. We cannot respectfully, or safely continue with our plans for the event.
Are you ready to say ‘I Did It My Way’ and help keep us flying?
Although we are unable to hold our traditional motorcycle run this year, we know that the biking community is as keen as ever to help raise vital funds for Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT).
We’re asking our heroic biking supporters to tackle a route of at least 60 miles this September. We need your support more than ever and would love you, as you may have done in previous years, to continue with your own run ‘I Did It My Way’ from the 20th September until the end of the month. Send us in your photos and tell us what you got up to for a gallery wall on our website.
Your sponsorship money will be vital to making ‘I Did It My Way’ ; a success, so please use the paper forms mailed out to you or downloadable online here. You can also support us via JustGiving
Get sponsored by friends and family to help raise those all-important, life-saving funds. Each mission costs on average £2,200 so we need YOU to help keep us operational. If 1,000 riders raised £30-£50 in sponsorship money we would raise enough to fund 18 missions!
For those of you that would like to take on the challenge and raise your own sponsorship for your local Air Ambulance, just purchase a standard ticket and raise sponsorship.
JustGiving sends your donation straight to Essex & Herts Air Ambulance and automatically reclaims GiftAid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more.
How can you raise life-saving funds?
We understand that it can be hard to find the time to raise that all-important sponsorship, so this year, we have given our supporters the option to make a donation at the time of their ticket purchase instead. Just select this option when adding your ticket to the basket, it could make all the difference.
Thank you to our sponsors that make this event a success by supporting us.
