Team story

[p]A tenacious team in trainers are running, walking, cycling or crawling to complete a 'from the front door' (within relevant government exercise guidelines) a 26 mile MR'athon in support of Mountain Rescue! [/p][p][br][/p][p]Last year more than 2000 people in need were helped by Mountain Rescue volunteers and in 2020 MR continues to show selfless commitment to helping others, assisting walkers and climbers, providing crucial support during flood crises, searching for vulnerable people missing from home and supporting the police and ambulance service. Volunteers do all this while having regular jobs and family lives to juggle! During lockdown teams have been supporting their local communities and many team members are key workers currently working incredibly hard on the front line.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Whilst our activities in the outdoors are temporarily limited the Mountain Rescue teams are still working hard to remain operational to save lives. The teams rely on donations and many avenues of fundraising has completely dried up as charity boxes sit empty in pubs, shops and cafes that are closed.[/p][p][br][/p][p]An enthusiastic bunch of volunteer Mountain Rescue Search Dog handlers, Trainee Search Dog handlers, 'Dogsbodies' and supporters have teamed up to run an MR'athon in support of MR Teams across England & Wales. Over 40 runner and non-runner folk alike are dusting off their trainers and adjusting their buffs to clock up the K's from their own front doors over one week from 23rd May 2020. You can follow the efforts of your local team members and everyone online at MRSDE FB page. I'm sure some of the Search Dogs will be getting in on the action too - in fact if you threw their favourite toy for 26 miles there's no way you'd stop them![/p][p][br][/p][p]We all thank you very, very much if you can help with a donation at this time. We have often been reminded that when this difficult time passes 'the mountains will still be there' and so, with everyone's support, will be our phenomenal volunteer Mountain Rescue Teams saving lives.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]*donations will be shared between the teams listed below :-[/p][p][br][/p][p]Teesdale and Weardale[/p][p]Dartmoor Search and Rescue Tavistock [/p][p]East Cornwall [/p][p]Exmoor [/p][p]Calder Valley [/p][p]Northumberland National Park [/p][p]North of Tyne [/p][p]Western Beacons [/p][p]Rossendale and Pendle[/p][p]South Snowdonia[/p][p]Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashburton[/p][p]Woodhead [/p][p]Edale[/p][p]Derby[/p][p]West Cornwall[/p][p]Dartmoor Search and Rescue Okehampton[/p][p]Cave Rescue Organisation [/p][p]Upper Wharfdale[/p][p]Swaledale [/p][p]Cleveland[/p]
