Let’s shine bright together! 

Join us for another year of Heli Hike at night, waking around the beautiful Mote Park. Grab your friends, fancy dress, glow accessories, torches and face paint, and have an unforgettable time raising money to help us keep saving lives. 

Take on either 2.5 or 5 mile after dark with your friends and family. Receive your medal at the end and celebrate your achievement with delicious hot food and drinks at our event village. 

As your local air ambulance charity, we led the way in becoming the first to fly 24/7 365 days a year – so every step you take and every pound you raise goes towards making sure our lifesaving team can get to where they’re urgently needed, day or night.
