Old enough to know better but trying to stay young
Deserts, Canyons and Mountains in 2020!
It is Walking With the Wounded's 10th anniversary this year and to celebrate this milestone we have decided to redouble our efforts to raise badly needed cash to help them do what they do best - support those of our service veterans who have found the transition to civilian life far harder than anyone could expect.
Between us this year we will be walking a swift 100kms in the dunes and wadis of the Sahara, (Johnny and Alverne), running the 250kms Marathon des Sables in April, (Harry) and the 275kms Grand to Grand Ultra in Nevada in September, (Andrew). In May we will also again form a team to take on the toughest of the routes that will take us 29kms over some unspeakably steep Lake District mountains in a day. We will be the first team with a collective average age of over 60 to do this!
We're the lucky ones with jobs, families, homes. Most people leave the military with no problem, but for a small minority it is a very tough experience.
WWTW support the veterans 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.
Please help us to help them.
Thank you very much
Alverne, Johnny, Harry and Andrew
