The Rushdenites

Support our D-Day Challenge

In honour of our forefathers as well as current servicemen who have bravely fought to protect our way of life, we 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. We 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 almost 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.

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

Thank you so much for your support.
