Raising money for the Northland Rescue Helicopter that helped save my life when I had my Heart Attack and Cardiac Arrest


I am wanting to raise funds for the Northland Rescue Helicopter that got me to the Hospital so fast for the immediate help I needed to keep me alive on the day. This happened whilst I was running the Kerikeri 1/2 Marathon last November the 19th. (that's me doing the run in my photo). I had a Heart Attack and Cardiac Arrest at around 19km. With the help of the friends I was running with, who performed CPR and also a couple of other runners who stopped to assist them and along with the help of the Northland Emergency Services I am able to continue with my passion for running. On the day I had a stent put in, then found out the best option for me was to have a double bypass operation, which I had a week before Christmas. I am now getting back into running and have decided to run the Kerikeri 1/2 marathon this year to finish and whilst doing so trying to raise funds for the Northland Rescue Helicopter. I appreciate any help with my fundraising. Thanks so much Nigel Baker.

With this run, I am wanting to be involved with fundraising for the Northland Emergency Services Trust because they are a much needed service.
