MHA Monahans 13th year of being involved by James Gare

Now approaching our thirteenth event, we’re very pleased to be organising the White Horse Challenge again for 2018.

It is an excellent opportunity for friends, families and colleagues to get outside in our glorious Wiltshire countryside, challenging yourselves to walk up to 52 miles and raise money for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

So far we’ve helped raise over £147,300 for the charity and we’re hoping that this year will be just as successful as past years and see us pass the £160,000 mark.

Despite the unpredictable weather last year, the teams set off on and completed this ambitious and challenging walk, choosing one of four routes ranging from seven to 52 miles.

The routes give participants the opportunity to see several of the iconic Wiltshire white horses from a perspective not easily achievable in daily life, including those in Devizes, Alton Barnes, Pewsey, Marlborough, Hackpen and Cherhill.

It was a great weekend enjoyed by all, made even more rewarding by the amount those involved were able to raise – a staggering £8,763!

As a self-funded charity, we feel the Wiltshire Air Ambulance is an incredibly important charity to support and raise money for. The work they do is vital to the local community and we are honoured to be able to give back to this fantastic cause.

This year’s White Horse Challenge will be held on 7th and 8th July, and registration was launched today by the organisers, at Cherhill’s White Horse.

We hope that with your help, we can make it the most successful year yet! With a variety of challenges to choose from, there is one to suit everyone!
