On the 12th September, teams from the three Emergency Services will ‘escape’ the Isle of Wight and go ‘on the run’ for a 50 hour period, as they travel as far away from the Island as possible, with zero planning, and compete in a ‘Blue Light Breakout’, raising money in aid of Island charity ‘The Wight Brainy Bunch’.
The teams will consist of two off duty personnel from Police, Ambulance and Fire, who have given their time freely to take part in the challenge to support IOW Firefighter Mark Grimes who founded the charity following his diagnosis of a brain tumour in 2015.
The event is supported by Novum Law, Maher Ross and DDC Electronics, along with many other local businesses, who have kindly sponsored the event to ensure the teams can be repatriated to the Island following their two-day challenge.
The event is kindly supported by IW Radio and teams will be tracked throughout the event, with the public encouraged to support and vote for their chosen team via TEXT DONATE.
The winning team will be the pair who travel the furthest in the given time.
If any local businesses would also like to sponsor the event, please contact the charity on:
