Our expeditions aim to inspire those coping with both disability and injury to show that our wounded are capable of leading fulfilling lives. They can achieve at the highest level. They serve as inspiration to those from all walks of life who are coping, daily, with the challenges of injury, illness and rebuilding their lives.
All of our expeditions are fully corporately sponsored and their funding is separate from the generous donations we receive for the charity.
Every penny raised goes to helping those in need.
Everest May 2012
The world’s highest mountain is still a daunting prospect – unpredictable weather, freezing temperatures and altitude sickness, combined with the technical challenges of climbing a mountain, makes this one of the world’s most difficult expeditions. WWTW are planning an ascent from Nepal in May 2012. The challenges are severe, but with careful planning, focused determination and a great deal of heart, they will stand on top of the world, once again highlighting that our wounded servicemen and women are an extraordinary group of young people who, with your kindness and generosity, we aim to support.

North Pole April 2011
On 16th April 2011, our team, including 4 wounded soldiers, successfully arrived at the North Pole. They covered the greatest distance of any polar expedition that season, man-hauling their sledges, containing all of their equipment and supplies, over 200 miles. They were completely unsupported in the most hostile environment on Earth, dealing with polar bears, open water leads and temperatures of -60°C. This is a huge achievement for able-bodied adventurers, let-alone for those who have sustained life-changing injuries and amputated limbs. It perfectly illustrates the spirit and determination of these remarkable young men and women.
