Adam Booth from Witton is taking on the Morecambe Half Marathon to help raise money for our charity, following a terrible traffic accident involving his pregnant sister and three year old nephew.
In April 2015, Adam Booth’s sister and young nephew were stationary in their car, when another vehicle travelling at over 50mph crashed into the side of them. Due to the severity of the accident, we were urgently dispatched and arrived on the scene within minutes. Our team provided rapid stabilising treatment and airlifted Adam’s sister to a specialist trauma unit at Royal Preston Hospital. In a miraculous stroke of luck, both the unborn baby and young nephew were found to be unharmed. Adam’s sister sustained several severe injuries and is now on a slow road to recovery.
Adam was very grateful to our team who were there to help his sister and to show his support, he will be taking part in the Morecambe Half Marathon on 25th June in aid of us. Not known as a seasoned runner, Adam is making every effort to ensure he is ready for the race by training hard in the months to follow.
Adam said: “No amount of money could thank the North West Air Ambulance Charity enough for the care and attention they gave my sister and young nephew on that terrible day. I want to raise money to show support for the people who helped my family in their time of need so they can continue their amazing work.”
