Walking With The Wounded is a UK based charity which funds both the re-training and re-education of wounded servicemen and women with the aim of helping them find long term employment after they have left the Armed Forces.
Whilst the primary role of the charity is to raise funds to finance re-training programs our expeditions are designed to generate awareness of ‘Our Wounded’ and to highlight the extraordinary determination and courage of Our Wounded soldiers. The most recent expedition was the hugely successful South Pole Allied Challenge which saw teams including Wounded Soldiers from the UK, Australia and USA, joined by Prince Harry trek to the South Pole.
Although extreme expeditions like this which support our fundraising efforts are tailored to the more experienced adventurers, alternative endeavours are available to all. Why not join our Kilimanjaro challenge 2014 and witness first-hand the determination of Our Wounded Soldiers. In 2013 we organised our first Kilimanjaro challenge and this was a great success with all of the participants reaching the summit successfully. They were joined on their adventure by Captain Ibi Ali who went on to join the UK’s team on the South Pole challenge .
For our 2014 Kilimanjaro Challenge, we are delighted to be working with Private Expeditions again. All of the team who climbed with them in 2013 had a fantastic time and we are sure you will too.
