Since the charity was founded in 2010 we have organised and run ambitious expeditions to extreme parts of the world incorporating teams of wounded servicemen and women, both those with physical and mental injuries.

The charity has tackled the North and South Poles, walked the length of Britain and crossed the USA. 

The rationale behind our expeditions focuses on both our wounded as well as wider society and includes:

  • To raise awareness of the work Walking With The Wounded undertakes.
  • To provide inspiration to those coping daily with injury and disability.
  • To demonstrate to ‘Our Wounded’ that they are able to achieve at the very highest level.
  • To highlight to Corporate UK the extraordinary skill, determination, ability and courage that members of the wounded community possess despite injury.

All of our expeditions are sponsored in their entirety by corporate partners and their funding is separate from the generous donations we receive for the charity. This ensures monies we receive from fundraising activity are distributed solely into our re-education and re-training programs and not into funding any elements of our expeditions.

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.
