Chariots of Fire 2021
This year, all sponsorship money is being rasied for East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) who are seeking to raise £97,500 to help them deliver more life-saving training across the county.
With your support and sponsorship EAAA is fundraising to help people in Cambridgeshire develop life-saving CPR skills. EAAA can be tasked to any kind of life-changing or life-threatening medical emergency, however cardiac arrests, which happen at home, at work or out in the community, are the most common type of incident the crews attend. Cardiac arrests can happen in people of all ages, for a range of different medical reasons.
In this situation, early bystander CPR and use of a defibrillator, before the emergency services arrive, make the biggest impact on that person’s chance of survival. The charity is passionate about teaching as many people as possible these life-saving skills so that more people survive a cardiac arrest.
“EAAA attended 77 cardiac arrests in Cambridgeshire alone last year and we’re passionate about doing everything we can to help these patient’s get the best care and the best outcome possible. By supporting Chariots of Fire, you will be helping to save lives in Cambridgeshire.”
This year’s race, where teams of 6 runners each run the 1.7 miles scenic route, takes place on Sunday 19 September and starts, and ends, on Queens’ Green. Team registrations close on 15 September, or if all 350 teams have been registered before that date.
