TE Connectivity Veterans Group - First Training Walk Around Avebury
Today Team One walked their first training walk around the Ridgeway taking in Avebury, East Kennet, Silbury Hill, Overton Down and West Kennet Long Barrow.
The scenery was outstanding and took in 14km of trails with the weather holding out, but a bit slippery underfoot in places.
The objective was to test out our map reading skills in preparation for the 16km Peaks route and give ourselves a challenge to simulate what we are going to find on the Cumbrian Challenge.
We are still looking for additional walkers to join in and support.
TE Connectivity Veterans Group - Team One Announced
We now have 'Team One' signed up and preparing for the Peaks challenge in May.
‘Team One’ Walkers - Peter Gale, Tiago Correia, Subhash Mungarwadi & Alex Russell
We are starting our set of training walks with an 11km trek around the Avebury area on Sunday morning.
This will enable the team to hone in their map reading skills and check on our fitness levels.
Feel free to check out the Team's individual pages on their progress as we move closer to main event.
Any donations will be greatly appreciated.
TE Connectivity Veterans Group - We are supporting our wounded. Are you with us?
We are a global team of veterans, family members, and supporters. Integrity, Accountability, Teamwork, and Innovation are the founding values that connect the mission of the Veterans Employee Resource Group (ERG). Our purpose is to engage and develop our employees, serve the veteran community, and recruit veteran talent to ensure TE's future success in the competitive global economy. We are dedicated to building a global TE Network that supports those initiatives through collaboration, training, and understanding.
TE Veterans Group is a Global ERG that is open to all walks of life regardless of military or nonmilitary affiliation, employee status, or location.
We are taking on the Cumbrian Challenge to support ex military - a big day taking on a big walking route around the Lake District alongside teams of veterans who are getting their lives back on track thanks to Walking With The Wounded.
Our ask is quite simple. Please dig deep, or sign up a team to take us on.
Why? We're the lucky ones with jobs, families, homes. Most people leave the military without any issue, but for a small minority it isn't so easy.
Walking With The Wounded support ex military who are struggling with their mental health, who are hard to reach, socially isolated, homeless, in police custody... men and women with little to look forward to but who want to get back into society and employment – which is at the heart of what WWTW do.
Please help our team hit our £2k target. Every £675 can enable a veteran to access 1-2-1 private mental health therapy within an average of 4 days of referral. Imagine that.
Thank you so much in advance for your support.
