To Coincide with the Boston Marathon,
Safety Wearable Technology Company, Run Angel
Announces New Charity Partnership with Angel Flight Northeast
BOSTON – APRIL 11, 2019– Safety wearable technology company, Run Angel Ltd., has partnered with Angel Flight Northeast, a non-profit organization that coordinates free air transportation for patients to access life-saving medical care.
"Angel Flight Northeast is a story of courageous men, women and children who have an incredible will to live. Partnering with Angel Flight Northeast in advance of the one of the greatest running events of the year, the Boston Marathon, was an obvious choice for us," said Ellen Caren, Founder of Run Angel. "We at Run Angel, share in Angel Flight Northeast’s commitment and dedication in helping those most in need, especially in an emergency situation.”
Run Angel™ is an innovative safety wrist wearable that emits a very loud siren from its patent pending acoustic chamber design to attract attention in an emergency and connects with smartphone devices to send emergency alerts to loved ones by SMS & email, showing the date, time and location of the wearer.
“We are honored and humbled that Run Angel has chosen Angel Flight NE as their charity of choice with a percentage of the proceeds from their Limited-Edition Boston Angel, inspired in the colors of the renowned Boston Marathon, going to support our mission,” said Larry Camerlin, President and Founder of Angel Flight Northeast. “Much like our mission to make a profound difference in the lives of our patients and their families, Run Angel’s personal safety wearable makes a difference in the lives of those who wear it as well as in the lives of those they care about and love.”
Angel Flight Northeast is a non-profit that coordinates free air transportation services for patients who need to travel outside of their area for specialized medical care. This is made possible with the volunteer corps of over 500 private pilots who combine their love of flying with the spirit of grassroots volunteerism by flying patients and their families to the critical health care they need along with the assistance of commercial aviation partners. Founded in 1996, AFNE have scheduled over 77,000 flight requests and have flown more than 15 million miles. For more information regarding Angel Flight Northeast, please visit www.angelflightne.org/
A blue and yellow Limited Edition ‘Boston Angel’ is now available from www.runangel.com at $80. The device has been tested out by a fantastic young woman by the name of Allison McCarthy.
“I love Run Angel’s device because I go on a lot of runs by myself, so safety is always on my mind. By wearing the Run Angel device, it gives me peace of mind that if something happens to me medically or as result of an attack, I know that there is way that I can be found,” noted Allison McCarthy. Allison is running the marathon to raise funds and awareness for Angel Flight NE in honor of her family member – Jessica – who Angel Flight NE have been flying from Boston to New York for specialized care. “The Run Angel device adds a layer of protection for
all those things you cannot prevent but can help mitigate with this safety measure.”
“Run Angel demonstrates the importance of staying safe while staying active,” said Catie Riordan, VP of Consumer Retail, Enterprise Ireland. “We are so proud to support Run Angel and it is so fantastic to see them teaming up with Angel Flight NE for a meaningful and worthwhile partnership.”
