My story

[p]The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) is a UK charity providing lifelong support to serving men, women and veterans from the British Armed Forces and their families and dependants. From support with bereavement and assisting the lonely, to finding a house after leaving the military. Being from an Army family, I understand the importance of SSAFA’s work and I feel it is now time to give a little back to such a brilliant charity.[/p][p]To help with my fundraising, I have taken on the challenge of doing three physical endurance events in March, April, May and July. Many of you will know my passionate hate for running, so the bright idea of entering 3 x 10km mud/obstacle runs and the DBMax 51Fiver Competitive Distance Triathlon and now a Half Iron Man, may surprise you (see links below). Over the coming months I will be joined by Henry Henshall, my Rally Co-Driver for the X-Runner and Wolf Run, before I take on the drowning/ high speed bike crash/ crawl in the Triathlon then Half Iron.[/p][p]Sponsorship for the events outlined above are part of a wider attempt to raise £100,000 for the SSAFA, through the Rally for Heroes 2018 Family, of which Henry and I are now part of. The 50 vehicle, ‘Grand Tour’ aims to cover 2,280 miles, crossing 10 countries over 10 days, in recognition of the 453 British Military lives that were lost as well as the 7000 wounded during the Afghanistan conflict. [/p][p]100% of all money raised is going to the SSAFA, and I will be writing to everyone that choses to donate so that I can thank you personally.[/p][p]links below show all the events and some information about the Charity. Please help Henry and I to hit our target and aid SSAFA in helping those that have served our Nation.[/p][p][u]The SSAFA [/u] - [url=https://www.ssafa.org.uk/]https://www.ssafa.org.uk[/url] [/p][p][u]Henry Henshall’s Fundraising Page[/u] - [url=https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/HenryHenshall]https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/HenryHenshall[/url] [/p][p][u]Half Iron Man[/u] - http://eu.ironman.com/triathlon/events/emea/ironman-70.3/edinburgh.aspx#axzz5HYnl62bx [/p][p][u]DBMax 51Fiver Triathlon[/u] - [url=https://www.dbmax.co.uk/events/blueseventy-51fiver-cotswold-standard-tri-13th-may/]https://www.dbmax.co.uk/events/blueseventy-51fiver-cotswold-standard-tri-13th-may/[/url][/p][p][u]X-Runner[/u] - [url=http://xrunner.co.uk]http://xrunner.co.uk[/url] [/p][p][u]Wolf Run[/u] - [url=https://thewolfrun.com]https://thewolfrun.com[/url] [/p][p][u]Rally for Heroes[/u] - [url=http://www.rallyforheroes.com]http://www.rallyforheroes.com[/url] [/p]
