East Anglian Air Ambulance launch illuminating new event ‘Neon Night Mission’

East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) are excited to launch their brand new ultimate 5k event ‘Neon Night Mission’, which will take place at 19:00 (arrival at 6pm) on Saturday 13th October 2018 at Earlham Park, Norwich. The clue’s in the name, the event will be an action-packed neon night run which will be your very own EAAA mission, combining all the best bits of a fun 5k including; foam, paint, lasers, wind machines and inflatables. What’s not to love?

EAAA is a charity providing a life-saving helicopter emergency medical service for the people of East Anglia. Each of their crews consist of two pilots, one doctor and a critical care paramedic. The crew take advanced critical care directly to patients who have suffered life-threatening or life-changing accidents or medical emergencies.

The aim of this ultimate 5k is to celebrate EAAA being one of the first air ambulances in the country to fly to unlit sites at night and our incredible crews who overcome various challenges using night vision systems to safely land the helicopter and get our expert crew to the scene.

You can feel a part of that for the night as the event is themed all around our missions. You will go through five mission areas; turning yourself EAAA colours (red and yellow) in the paint zone, running through the downdraft (wind machine), using your night vision to navigate through the dark (green light tunnel), navigating the low cloud (foam area) and finishing up in the landing zone – it’s going to be a bouncy ride.

The event is open to anyone over the age of 12, and you’ll need to sign up quick – we think this might be a sell-out. Early bird prices range from £16.50 up to £25, by selecting a ‘Minimum Sponsorship’ ticket the aim is to raise a minimum of £50 for EAAA. For the full range of prices and how you can sign up please visit the website www.neonnightmission.co.uk or go to our Facebook page Neon Night Mission – The Ultimate 5k.

Catrina Laskey, Events Manager for EAAA said; “This event is going to be something new for EAAA and the local area, with a mix-up of all the most exciting elements of a fun run. The best part is that by taking part and having a fantastic evening out you will be raising funds for EAAA and helping our crew get out to more patients, saving more lives. What could be more satisfying? And fun of course! We hope to see you all there, dressed head to toe in neon.”
