I am an operational member of West Midlands Search and Rescue (WMSAR). I am going to be doing Round 3 of the Shropshire Mud Run Series at Lilleshall National Sports Centre on Saturday 18th July. I am going to be raising money for WMSAR.
WMSAR is the Lowland Rescue team for Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire. We are on-call 24/7 to help the emergency services locate and rescue people in danger.
We are a team of 30 unpaid specialists in land and water search, and we are a registered charity. We're exactly like a mountain rescue team, but without the mountains.
We receive no funding from the government or police, and we rely on our operational members to pay for their own fuel, personal equipment and time. We ask an awful lot from our members in terms of commitment from them and their families.
I am hoping to raise 500 to put towards running costs of the team and new kit.
If you do not wish to donate money then the team has an amazon wish list of kit the team needs ranging from batteries to Blizzard Bag for injured persons. below is a link to the wish list: http://www.amazon.co.uk/registry/wishlist/3R60A6KCRMT9H
