Cain Leathem

Support my D-Day Challenge

In honour of our forefathers as well as current servicemen who have bravely fought to protect our way of life, I will be taking on the D-Day Challenge to raise vital funds for life-changing mental health treatment for veterans.

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 80th anniversary of D-Day, 6 June 2024.

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.

I’m taking on D-Day Challenge to help take vital strides towards ensuring veterans can get the support they need.

Thank you so much for your support.

Tuesday 1st Aug
Remembering those brave heroes that went ashore and from above in Normandy in 1944. They include my Granda Sapper William Leathem, upon Sword Beach on the 6th June. Thank you to all that have given. It WILL make a difference to our Veterans.

D Day walk across the beaches of Normandy

Tuesday 1st Aug
To Remember and Honour those who went ashore (and from the air) ... including my own Grandfather, on what be 80 years since that day in history. 

To raise much needed funds to help and support those who still carry the memories, and sometimes demons, of their time in service.

To those that gave so much... I wish to give back.

Please, if you can, please support our brave men and women of HM Armed Forces 🙏

Donating to remember those who have given their lives in service to protect our country, our values and our freedom - all of which is so easily taken for granted. I am also taking the time to remember Cain and how much he has given to so many of us during his lifetime, occasionally at his personal expense since he wears his heart on his sleeve. He is often under appreciated, always effective and never unethical. We must protect this man and support his efforts. :) with lots of love and respect, from your glamorous ulcerative colitis success story
