Baley Faulkes-Anstee, Charlie Dodd, Daniel Ferries and Harry Porter – four 16 year old cadets with 2417 (Newmarket) Squadron Air Training Corps – are raising funds for Walking With The Wounded by marching in the 97th Nijmegen International Four Days Marches from the 16th to the 19th July 2013.
The team of four has already completed the RAFWARMA 50 mile qualifier (photo above) for Nijmegen and they are now gearing up for a 100 mile march over four days starting on Tuesday July 16th. Lots of luck to all!
“Our armed forces today are asked to do so much in our name and on our behalf. Every day young men and women are risking their lives in extreme circumstances, and they do so with great professionalism and courage. During the course of these operations many young men and women also suffer horrific injuries. When they return home they face a very different future to the one they had planned and with challenges they could never foresee, for many their future outside the Armed Forces is unsure and they face a long road to recovery. This is why we chose to raise money for them through Walking With The Wounded.” – Baley Faulkes-Anstee, Charlie Dodd, Daniel Ferries and Harry Porter
