For all of those of you who have enjoyed watching our heroes take on gruelling challenges on behalf of Walking With The Wounded, it must be remembered that there are two specific reasons that these seriously injured servicemen and women are able to face up to these imposing expeditions.
Firstly, their own inner strength, resolve and mental fortitude; the fact that they will not be beaten by their injuries. Secondly, the rehabilitation programmes funded by Walking With The Wounded enable them to realise their potential post-injury and discover the resolve mentioned above.
Please click here to see Jaco van Gass (above – Team Member of the North Pole 2011 and the Everest 2012 expeditions) speak about his life-chaninging injuries or click here to hear Karl Hinett (ran 52 marathons in 52 weeks in 2011 and Member of the Everest 2012 expedition) discuss the trauma he suffered in the line of duty.
In order for these young men and women to benefit from programmes which prove there is life after an injury, funding is needed. This is where you can help!
It is vital that the generous support we have received previously continues. Currently we have a team of wounded soldiers in the French Alps taking on a three-day cycling challenge. Please click here and take 2 minutes to make their thigh-burning endeavours worthwhile.
Every donation is greatly appreciated and goes directly to fund rehabilitation and re-training programmes for our young, wounded heroes who have sacrificed so much for our benefit.
