My story

[p][b]248 WARRIOR CHALLENGE[/b][/p][p]To honour the rich heritage and Kaida of the Gurkhas, 248 Gurkha Signal Squadron are embarking on a series of arduous challenges from 17 May – 4 Jul 21 to raise money for The Gurkha Museum – our targeted amount is £2248.[/p][p]The Challenges are:[/p][p][b]London to Kathmandu & Back (17 May – 4 Jul 21)[/b][/p][p]A whole squadron effort to contribute to an accumulative distance travelled, under their own power (Run, Cycle, Row etc.), equal to London to Kathmandu and back ([b]14,654 km[/b]).[/p][p][b]Mt Everest Ascent (5 Jun 21)[/b][/p][p]Utilising the terrain of the Peak District, Soldiers will ascend the elevation of Sagarmartha (Mt Everest) ([b]8,848.86 m[/b]) carrying 15 kg in the traditional carry basket (Doko), in honour of Nepalese tradition and the arduous Gurkha recruit selection.[/p][p][b]Hero Workout (14 – 20 Jun 21)[/b][/p][p]Soldiers will complete a “Hero Workout”, each day for 7 days. These will be a punishing circuit workout to commemorate fallen comrades and the work done by heroes of the NHS throughout the pandemic.[/p][p][b]248 Challenge (4 Jul 21)[/b][/p][p]The final challenge will see 4 teams compete against each other to accumulate a total distance of 248km (each team will complete 62km - 21Km Run, 37Km Cycle & 4Km Row).[/p][p] [/p][p]The Gurkha Museum trust relies on public support. The national lockdown has been hard on the museum. This donation will enable the trust to continue preserving and promoting the history and culture of the Brigade of Gurkhas. The donation will also support the Museum to develop outreach projects enhancing Gurkha Heritage. 248 Gurkha Signal Squadron kindly requests your generosity and support to raise funds for the Gurkha Museum trust.[/p]
