Terry Byrne will be part of the Walking With The Wounded Trois Etapes Cycle Team and he is ready to take on the Alps over three stages based on the route of the legendary Tour de France.
He updated the race diary to explain why he is taking part in the pro-am cycle race.
He is doing it to raise money for Walking With The Wounded to help other injured servicemen and women like him, who wouldn’t be able to find a career path outside the Armed Forces without retraining.
Walking With The Wounded finances new qualifications, education and training programmes for those who are injured, to help with career transition. This enables the blind, the burn victims, the mentally injured, the amputees and all the other wounded personnel to rebuild their lives and to return to the work place.
Terry Byrne’s life changed forever after he fell victim to an improvised explosive device (IED) whilst carrying a routine night patrol in Afghanistan in August 2008. His injuries were sufficiently severe for his right leg to require amputation.
“I would like to say thank you to everyone that has donated already, this makes a massive difference for people like myself. I was injured on a land mine in Afghanistan in 2008, and Walking With The Wounded helped me get back in to work through retraining.” – Terry Byrne
