9 Challenges for Veterans Mental Health
I will be taking on the D-Day Challenge to raise vital funds for life-changing mental health treatment for veterans. Like many of my generation I have grown up learning about the ultimate sacrifice that those before us made during the World Wars. If you know me you will know that anything physical is the bane of my existence so why not give myself the ultimate challenge this year after being inspired by so many incredible stories from those that Combat Stress have helped.
The D-Day 44 Challenge commemorates the 1944 Allied invasion of occupied France. I will be heading to Normandy, to race across its picturesque beaches, finishing at the historic Pegasus Bridge on the 78th anniversary of D-Day, 6 June 2022
Combat Stress is the UK's leading charity for veterans' mental health. For over a century, they've helped former servicemen and women deal with issues like trauma, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Today, they provide support to veterans from every service and every conflict.
To help raise my funds for this challenge I am taking on 9 challenges in 9 months.
March in March, Abseil off of the Orbital, 100 miles in May, D-Day Challenge, Skydive, The 3 peaks challenge, The South Coast Challenge, The Bournemouth Half Marathon followed by one more challenge (tbc!)
Thank you so much for your support - and let me know what should be my November grand finale!
I will be posting regular updates on here!
