London's Air Ambulance Helipad Abseil 2020 (corp)

I'm fundraising for London’s Air Ambulance Charity

London’s Air Ambulance is the charity that delivers an advanced trauma team to London’s most seriously injured patients. Your donation will help save more lives by keeping the helicopter in the air and the rapid response cars on the road, ready for when they are needed most. By providing intervention as quickly as possible after injury, London’s Air Ambulance Charity aims to give patients the best chance of survival, and best quality of life, after trauma.

My Updates

Event date postponed

Monday 5th Oct
I just would like to inform you that my abseiling event was originally scheduled for 10th September 2020. Due to the rise in number of Covid-19 cases, London Air Ambulance decided to postpone it to 2021. I don't have a set date yet, but will keep you posted. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all again for your generosity in supporting me on this challenge. 

Thank you very much!!!

The Challenge I signed up for

Wednesday 12th Aug
I'm abseiling 17 floors down from the Royal London Hospital in September. It's the highest helipad in Europe. 

It's a great challenge, I look forward to that.

A little story about myself

Tuesday 11th Aug
About 7 years ago, I started my journey around 8pm from Sao Paulo (Brazil) to the county side to visit my family, the distance was about 400 miles. I had a busy week and was more tired than usual, despite that, I decided to drive over night as I had done it many times in the past. Unfortunately when I was about 5 minutes to reach my destination, I fell asleep and lost control of my car and it fell into a ditch. My car was completely lost but thank God, he kept my life, I only broke my shoulder and had a lot of pain. I was amazed how the rescue team handled the situation, with care, love and all the support, taking me out of the car and taking me to the hospital. I decided that one day I would do something to contribute, and I got the opportunity to support a charity that's so supportive in a moment where human lives are most vulnerable. 

I really appreciate your support.

God bless you.
Thanks.
