An inspirational Gerrards Cross man is set to run the ULTRA Marathon this month to mark the 15th anniversary of his surviving a brain haemorrhage.
Richard Wynne-Ellis will run 43 miles from Slough to Oxford on October 19 to raise money for Thames Valley Air Ambulance, who saved his life in October 2007 after he suffered a brain haemorrhage.
It was thanks to the quick actions of the air ambulance staff – which saw Richard transported from Wexham Park Hospital to Oxford, a journey that would usually take an hour by car, in just 11 minutes – that he survived.
At the time of writing, he has raised more than £2,000 and aims to raise a total of £25,000, which is the equivalent of a day’s operating cost for the charity.
