We’re excited to have been chosen as the charity partner for Blackburn Council’s new Blackburn Santa Dash for the second year. With 80% of the proceeds being donated to North West Air Ambulance Charity we ho ho hope you can join us!

If you’re an experienced runner looking for some festive fun, a beginner taking on the 5k challenge or a family looking to get active – this event is open to all, including your dogs! Join Team NWAA and run, jog or walk your way around the 5k course to help our crew save lives.

Once you’ve completed your run stay and enjoy the festive atmosphere with all the amazing Christmas activities Blackburn has to offer

Adults and children aged 6+ will receive a Santa suit for their entry fee and if you choose to raise sponsorship you’ll also receive an NWAA t-shirt in your fundraising pack too!

Online registration for the Blackburn Santa Dash has now closed. You can still register on the day and we look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible!

Here are some of the ways in which your hard earned sponsorship could help change the lives of people right here in the North West.

  • £9 could fuel our aircraft for one minute of a mission
  • £25 could buy a warming blanket, essential to maintain the body temperature of severe trauma patients such as those who have suffered cardiac arrest
  • £100 could be enough to help save the life of a seriously ill patient by buying a surgical airway kit crucial in life-threatening situations, such as airway obstruction or facial trauma

Volunteer – maybe running is not your thing but you still look great in festive fancy dress?! Contact volunteer@nwaa.net if you’d like to support us on the day.
