Support my March in March

I am so excited to once again be showing my support for Combat Stress in my third March In March virtual challenge to help raise much needed funds and awareness for Veterans’ Mental Health.

My virtual fundraising participation started back in 2019. I started using my trusted Motomed exercise bike a year later and have now to date cycled around 212 miles in 9 separate Virtual Events.

I was born with cerebral palsy which has affected three of my limbs: my right arm and both my legs. My virtual cycling challenges have greatly tested my physical limits, given my disability. Daily, I am in admiration of veterans' determination and courage both physically and mentally to heal and move beyond their battles.

My starting aim is to cycle to every Barracks in Scotland and my ultimate goal is to do the same for all Barracks across the United Kingdom. So far, I’ve accomplished three Barracks in Scotland.

For this year’s March In March, I have chosen a route I am not so familiar with, but like every virtual challenge I participate in, it has been meticulously planned out and visited.

On Saturday the 23rd of March, I will cycle nonstop using my Motomed exercise bike starting at the War Memorial in Bankfoot, north of Perth, Scotland and ending at the Queens Barracks, 7SCOTS The Royal Regiment of Scotland.

Taking part in the March In March 2024 event for Combat Stress allows me to support a cause that’s important to me while also allowing me to raise awareness and vital funds for Veterans’ Mental Health.

Your support, encouragement and kind donation to Combat Stress would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
