Zoe Robertson is taking on the ABP Southampton Marathon in a bid to raise money for Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance – the charity that helped save her life.
When the rear tyre on her car blew out, Zoe lost control of her car and rolled several times into a ditch on the side of the motorway. Zoe urgently needed specialist critical care and was flown to University Hospital Southampton where she spent the next six weeks recovering.
“I was completely alone,” says Zoe, “and have no recollection of the accident. I had a traumatic brain injury, which led to a bleed on the centre of my brain, a badly fractured pelvis and several broken ribs. After my stay in hospital, I got to come home to my wonderful daughters and I have Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance to thank for that.”
Zoe had a traumatic brain injury, a badly fractured pelvis and several broken ribs.
Since her accident in 2012, Zoe has thrown herself out of plane on a 10,000ft skydive, abseiled down the Spinnaker Tower and walked 27miles to raise money for the air ambulance charity that helped save her life.
“Though I can never repay them for what they did for me that day, I will always try to raise as much money for them as I can. They are my heroes. If people would consider donating to this incredible charity, I would be so grateful.”
