This year a team of wounded servicemen will head to the France to take on the imposing challenge of the Trois Etapes – three infamous stages of the Tour de France.
This pro-am cycling race, which will take place at the end of July, aims to raise over a million pounds for various charities and Walking With The Wounded has taken on yet another brutal challenge. Cycling around 180k per day will take its toll on all participants, yet our severely wounded servicemen will not shy away from this challenge.
“It’s a massive uphill challenge, pardon the pun, and we really can’t wait – it’s a great way to raise money for Walking With The Wounded and make the charity visible to a whole new audience” – Don McClean, lower leg amputee (Afghanistan 2007) who will make up part of the Walking With The Wounded team for the 2012 Trois Etapes challenge.
With the support of LDC, Walking With The Wounded will embark upon yet another challenge which will push the participants to their physical limits.
All news of the race will be updated via inteactive blogs and this website, so return here for more details.
