Most of the missions will be ‘50’ themed with some of them breaking down further e.g. the SWIM mission consists of 50 individuals swims.[lt]br /[gt] I will have to complete a task, on average every four days for the next eight years whilst balancing work and family life. [lt]br /[gt]  [lt]br /[gt] Highlights will include summiting a 5,000m peak in the Middle East and diving the Rainbow Warrior wreck in New Zealand.[lt]br /[gt]  [lt]br /[gt] The ultimate aim of the challenge is to raise funds for two charities; The Royal Marines Charity and the Special Boat Service Association (SBSA).[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; line-height: normal; font-family: Verdana; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][span=font-kerning: none;] [/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; line-height: normal; font-family: Verdana; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][span=font-kerning: none;]Additionally every year, I will also complete a unique signature event. These will range from Project School Mountain (running a marathon, summiting the highest point and help build a school I funded, all in Sierra Leone) to following my grandfather's footsteps as he was taken, as a POW from Dunkirk through Germany and on to Poland.[lt]br /[gt]  [lt]br /[gt] In total, I will complete in excess of 700 separate tasks involving a manner of disciplines including running, skydiving, swimming, volunteering, climbing country high points and diving with sharks around the world.[lt]br /[gt]  [lt]br /[gt] I hope this challenge will inspire you to seek out your adventures, whilst supporting me and these two extremely important charities. I hope to raise £50,000 over the eight years whilst raising awareness of a number of other charities through volunteering.[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; line-height: normal; font-family: Verdana; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000; min-height: 12px;"[gt][span=font-kerning: none;] [/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; line-height: normal; font-family: Verdana; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][span=font-kerning: none;]Get involved:[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; line-height: normal; font-family: Verdana; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][span=font-kerning: none;]Web [url=http://www.exped5050.com][lt]span style="line-height: normal; -webkit-font-kerning: none;"[gt]www.exped5050.com[/span][/url][lt]/span[gt][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; line-height: normal; font-family: Verdana; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][span=font-kerning: none;]Instagram @stealthyadventurer[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; line-height: normal; font-family: Verdana; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][span=font-kerning: none;]Twitter @Exped5050[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; line-height: normal; font-family: Verdana; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][span=font-kerning: none;]Facebook /exped5050[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; line-height: normal; font-family: Verdana; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][span=font-kerning: none;] [/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; line-height: normal; font-family: Verdana; -webkit-text-stroke-width: initial; -webkit-text-stroke-color: #000000;"[gt][span=font-kerning: none;]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities.
