My story

[p]Hi All, [/p][p]I have been involved with the Rugby for Heroes charity for the last 6 years. Itโ€™s a fantastic charity that helps soldiers transit back into civilian life through the amazing sport of Rugby. [/p][p]Every year they run a number of fundraising events which I take part in. One of these this year is a testing two-day cycle on mountain bike ride [/p][p]As the nation marks 75 years since the Allied forces landed on the beaches of Normandy in June 1944, a Rugby for Heroes team will be cycling in the tank tracks of the Welsh Guards who went on to liberate Brussels in September 1944. A fitting end to the challenge will see the team compete in a remembrance rugby match - a real test of their tired bodies after two days in the saddle![/p][p]In an "armoured dash unequalled for speed", the Welsh Guards made the 14 hour, 110km journey from Douai to Brussels where the city was at last liberated.[/p][p]The route from Arras to Brussels will take a 30-strong team of ex-professional rugby players, current and former service personnel and Rugby for Heroes supporters two days to complete by mountain bike. [/p][p]As the team arrives in Brussels, it will be straight to Dendermonde RFC for a Vets match to honour the fallen.[/p][p]So please get behind me, your donation will make a massive difference. [/p][p]Thanks in advance.[/p][p][br][/p]
