Wings for Life

Red Bull’s official charity, Wings for Life, has revealed details of its latest two initiatives to raise money for its research into spinal injuries – one of which reflects the unique nature of this season’s Formula 1 grid.

First of all the charity is offering fans who sign up to run for the charity in the Silverstone half marathon next March two special money-can’t-buy experiences with the world championship-winning team.

Runners who run for Wings for Life, and commit to raising at least £300 for the cause, will be invited to the Red Bull Racing gym for a training session with the team that help Mark Webber stay in shape before the event on Sunday 3rd March 2013, and then a tour of the team’s Milton Keynes factory on completion of the challenge.

Places for the this year’s half marathon, which featured Red Bull chiefs Christian Horner and Adrian Newey, sold out last October and a similar scenario is expected this time round so Wings for Life is advising interested applicants to get in touch as soon as possible via elizabeth.credgington@wingsforlife.com.

Meanwhile, in celebration of the record six world champions that are on the F1 grid this year, the charity has also organised a very special auction which will take place following the end of the season.

Wings for Life has managed to get each active title winner – Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen, Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Red Bull’s very own Sebastian Vettel – to donate worn and signed race suits which will be sold off to the highest bidder in the auction at Mercedes-Benz World Brooklands on December 3.

Signing racing gloves and other photographic prints will also be among the lots to be auctioned off by famous auction house Bonhams with all proceeds raised to go directly to Wings for Life’s work around the world. Buyers will be able to bid online, over the phone or in person at the event.

    Off topic! James what about doing ‘a day in the life of JA’ or ‘a race day in the life of JA’. Who you meet with at the track, interview, time schedules, working on this site and work with etc. I for one would find this interesting, I’m sure many other would. What do you think?
