The AW139 Ultra for Everyone is proudly raising awareness and funds for the Northern NSW Helicopter Rescue Service (incorporating both the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter).
Through the Coronavirus health crisis their pilots, aircrew and engineers along with the NSW Health Doctors and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedics who fly with them are working hard to deliver medical care for those in need across Northern NSW.
In the first 4 months of 2020 across their 3 bases in Newcastle, Lismore and Tamworth they have flown well over 400 missions already.
This crisis has also had a significant impact on their ability to fundraise as many of their events and fundraising activities have had to be cancelled or postponed.
This is where you can help – AW139 ULTRA FOR EVERYONE
This new community driven Virtual Fundraising event held over month of June will give you the opportunity to challenge your fitness and raise funds for the Northern NSW Helicopter Rescue Service workhorse AW139 helicopters.
To participate in this Virtual Event, just enter, select your discipline/s and swim, cycle, or run your selected combination of 139 on your favourite track to complete the challenge. REGISTER HERE: https://hevents.com.au/events/aw139ufe//home/
