Private Client Solicitor, Ellie Taylor has completed an incredible 50 miles of running in aid of Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex, an independent charity providing world class emergency medical care for the people living, working and travelling in Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
Ellie completed her feat as part of the charity’s Run 31 initiative, that challenges individuals to run 31 miles over the course of the month. Ellie exceeded her own target, adding an extra 19 miles to her monthly total.
Ellie joined a group of 19 other fundraisers who reached a total 1016 miles collectively and together raised £23,321. In total, Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex Run 31 initiative, that included teams from other regions, raised a staggering £157,000.
Helene Poursain, Director of Fundraising and Events at Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex, commented,
“We are so grateful to the amazing 1,300 people who supported our Run 31 and raised essential funds for our charity, enabling us to continue to be there 24/7 for the most critically ill and injured people in our region. In fact, we have spoken to all participants to thank them individually and let them know how much we appreciate their support.”
Ellie Taylor commented,
“We all signed up to support our friend who lost her son in the summer and she bravely took part too. Although the air ambulance couldn’t save her son Eddie, she wanted to raise funds to help other families.
We set up a WhatsApp group so we could support each other virtually. We’d post pictures of our runs. It became a huge focus for all of us and seems strange now it’s over. We also received calls/emails from the Air Ambulance team as they are so grateful for the amount raised which really gave us all a boost.”
