Walking With The Wounded Take The Stage at
The Telegraph Adventure Travel Show
Saturday January 28th at 10:30am
Ed Parker, Walking With The Wounded Founder and member of the 2011 North Pole Expedition & 2012 Everest Expedition, will talk live at The Telegraph Adventure Travel Show – the UK’s only event dedicated to offbeat travel experiences, where the true spirit of adventure is revived.
In the run-up to this year’s Everest Summit attempt, Walking With The Wounded Founder Ed Parker will be appearing at The Telegraph Adventure Travel Show. Come down for an exclusive chance to hear him talk about the North Pole expedition, the arduous selection and training process in preparation for Everest, as well as his personal reasons for founding the charity.
Walking With The Wounded aims to raise money to re-skill and re-train injured servicemen and women from the British Armed Forces. Walking With The Wounded aims to raise a further £2m for identified education projects and training courses, which specifically account for both physical and mental injuries sustained by servicemen and women. During the North Pole Expedition, four wounded servicemen were joined by Expedition Patron, HRH Prince Harry, in a world-record trek to the North Pole. Now the charity are setting their sights even higher: to take five wounded servicemen to the top of the world and summit Mount Everest.
