Why Ride for EAAA?
For people unfortunate enough to be involved in accidents or medical emergencies, the likelihood of a full recovery – perhaps even survival – can depend on the level of specialist medical care they receive and how quickly they receive it. This is where EAAA can help.
The four counties we serve, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk, cover a huge area, much of it rural with many inaccessible and remote places. Add to this a poor road infrastructure and a journey for some seriously ill patients could take more than an hour.
Thankfully, our two specially equipped aircraft can reach patients anywhere in the region within 25 minutes and take them to hospital if necessary. The range of time-critical procedures performed by our highly skilled doctor/paramedic crews at the scene means they offer a standard of emergency care usually found only in a hospital.
We are a 365 day a year life saving service that attends an average 5 missions a day. We receive no regular government funding and it is only thanks to the generosity of people like you that we are able to keep our helicopters in the sky.
However you choose to support us, by registering to ride for EAAA you can expect:
Dedicated training and fundraising support from Holly Noon in the EAAA Norfolk Fundraising Team
A limited edition EAAA cycling jersey (once you’ve reached your fundraising target)
The chance to train with some of our cycle loving crew during a special training day on 14 May 2017
The chance to meet other people in Team EAAA before the event and on the day
A huge sense of pride knowing that every time you push the pedal, you’re helping keep our helicopters in the sky!
So what are you waiting for? Together, we save lives. Register here to ride for EAAA.
