I've always relished a challenge and having swam from Europe to Asia last year for Team Rubicon I felt I needed to raise the bar this time around. So what better way than to take on Marathon Des Sables, it's claim being 'The Toughtest Footrace on Earth'!" Click here to visit the Marathon Des Sables website to see exactly what i've signed up for!

Joining the Army for me was always about making a difference, and in particular for those less fortunate than myself. Team Rubicon is the same and allows me to have a positive impact for those in their time of need whilst utilising  my skill set from the military. For more infromation on Team Rubicon visit their website by clicking here.

Unfortunately, climate change is bringing about an increased level of natural disasters; so working in clean energy and the low carbon building sector through The Your Group of Companies along with volunteering at Team Rubicon let’s me implement a solution whilst assisting those who are directly affected.

Ultimately it's a desire to continue to serve and ensuring I do my part so that when my daughters ask in years to come 'what I did to prevent these issues?' I can tell them with a clear conscience I did my uppermost to have a positive impact.

I have set myself a target of £5000. This would make a massive impact at Team Rubicon and help them continue to deploy on operations and provide that important sense of purpose for military veterans.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story and if you can support me by making a donation, I would really appreciate it and together we can kick disasters in the teeth!
