Run Angel announces new charity partnership with Angel Flight Northeast in support of Boston Marathon

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 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 and 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 by 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 healthcare they need along with the assistance of commercial aviation partners. Founded in 1996, AFNE has scheduled over 77,000 flight requests and have flown more than 15 million miles.

“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.”

A blue and yellow limited edition ‘Boston Angel’ is now available from www.runangel.com for $80.
