'Being a football coach for children and a motorcycle
racer, St John Ambulance is a charity which is very close to my
heart due to the enormous help it gives in the training of race
side marshals and coaches helping keep all competitors safe. Many
of my close friends and myself could have been seriously injured or
killed without the help of St John Ambulance. It is for this reason
I loved the opportunity to run for St John ambulance in order to
give something back'
- Sam Boyd, runner
