Miles for Missions

On average, the HEMS team are tasked TWICE per day. It’s not only the medical crew who save lives, but the people who support the service.
Starting your mission is simple:
- Choose your activity (Walk, Run, Cycle or Swim)
- Choose which month to complete your challenge in (May, June, July or August)
- Choose the distance you will go (30, 50, 75 or 100 miles)
- Let us know by registering today and receive your digital fundraising pack!
Taking part is completely free, we only ask each person to try and raise a minimum of £100. Each day, Air Ambulance NI needs to raise £6,850 to keep the medical team in the air. Whether you complete 1 mile or 3 miles a day, the money you raise will fund the next mission, helping to save lives, brains and limbs.
‘Go off’ something that will benefit you and Air Ambulance NI! Whether you choose to go off alcohol, sweet treats, fizzy drinks, take-aways, meat, dairy or swear words, to name a few – by donating a little and asking your family, friends and loved ones to sponsor your efforts, you’ll help Air Ambulance lift off for another day!
You can choose your own length of time for this challenge, you could go off something for 2 weeks, a month or even longer. By asking your friends, family and work colleagues to sponsor your efforts, you’ll be helping to save lives, brains and limbs.
