Our inspirational CEO, Dr Emma Egging, is taking on her own JET10 challenge in 2021, to shine a spotlight on the vital work that we do in our 10th anniversary year. Emma's 10 events began with a gruelling Grantham Canal Ultramarathon on April 18th, and will culminate in the London Marathon in October. Her next challenge is a half-marathon (13 mile) paddleboard along the River Witham in Lincolnshire, a challenge she's undertaking with JET Trustee Sam Porteous, ex Red Arrows pilots Chris Lyndon-Smith and Dan Lowes and commercial pilot James Kirk. Each event she is undertaking represents a personal challenge to Emma, and she needs your support more than ever. EMMA'S EVENTS 1. Grantham Canal 33-mile ultramarathon (April 18th) 2.
