Adam, 32, is Marketing & Promotions Executive at STFC whilst Corrinne works as a personal trainer at Kiss Gym in Swindon.
The Wiltshire Air Ambulance are the Swindon Town FC nominated Charity of the Year for the second successive season. Head of Fundraising for Wiltshire Air Ambulance Caroline Corrigan said:
“Adam has already raised a huge amount of money for us when he did the Trek to the top of the highest Atlas Mountain in September 2012.
“When he and Corrine said they would like to do a run from Swindon to Yeovil in aid of our work, we were happy to help in whatever way we can.
“This event will raise lots of awareness for the charity on route to Yeovil and we thank STFC, Yeovil Town and all those companies who are helping to support our work.
“The funds raised from this event will help to keep us flying and saving lives. Funding for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance will rise from £700,000 per year to £2.5million by the end of 2014.
“We can only reach this amount with the help of people like Adam, Corrinne and STFC's on-going support and we wish them all the very best.”
