Longest Day

This June, go further for those who served

Take on the challenge on the anniversary of D-Day (6 June), the actual longest day itself (21 June), the end of lockdown (21 June) or Armed Forces Day (26 June) or a date that works for you.

It could be distance, or time. But relative to what you've done before as this is accessible to all.

Walking With The Wounded has teamed up with Brian Wood MC and his 'Keep Attacking' brand to create this ‘Longest Day’ challenge.

This June, Brian and WWTW want to inspire you to set a new personal best and, simply, go further than you've gone before to raise funds for other veterans who need mental health support.

You could run further than you have ever run before, or cycle for longer or support someone else, e.g. a child or relative to achieve a PB of their own.

To take part, simply:

  1. create a justgiving page here
  2. fundraise at least £82 (the cost of a mental health therapy session)
  3. earn an exclusive, limited edition WWTW x Keep Attacking t-shirt
  4. complete your own, memorable, ‘Longest Day’ adventure

Terms & conditions:

  1. This is for you. Make it count. Whether life is chaos or calm, take on board Brian Wood's mantra, Keep Attacking, and seize the day to support others who experienced their own longest day in far more dangerous places for us.
  2. No excuses. The challenge is relative to your ability and is open to anyone subject to complying with all safety and legal rules where you are.
  3. To qualify for an exclusive t-shirt, create your page asap and raise your first £82 in donations - the equivalent of the cost of a mental health therapy session - to help support Walking With The Wounded's employment, mental health and care coordination programmes.
  4. There are a range of sizes available on a first-come first-served basis and are non-returnable/non-exchangeable because this is a charity initiative.
  5. Participants take part at their own risk and undertake to only take on what they are healthy enough to achieve. If you have any doubts, please stop, think, see your GP and stay safe.
  6. Keep attacking, keep supporting, keep on going further for others.
