So many generous people have raised money for Walking With The Wounded through an event or by taking on a challenge and in doing so helped improve the lives of our wounded ex-servicemen and women. Do remember to send us photographs – we love to be able to showcase the amazing things our extraordinary fundraisers do to support our wounded. Thank you all for your contributions.
Here are just a few of our recent fundraisers:
Simon and Alison are walking the 2,190 mile Appalachian Trail in the USA
We are hugely grateful to Alison and Simon who are currently walking the Appalachian Trail which is a marked hiking trail in the Eastern United States, extending between Springer Mountain in Georgia and Mount Katahdin in Maine. They will be walking 10-15 miles a day which totals 2,185 miles. They started the trek on March 1st 2017 and it will take approximately 6 months to complete. So far they have completed just over 800 miles. You can support them by donating to their fundraising page here.

If you're near Gorleston-on-Sea (near Great Yarmouth, East Norfolk) on 27th August, please support Rickie's charity day with music and entertainment at No.1 Bar & Kitchen.

Kyle, a former serviceman from Ipswich who has been supported by Walking With The Wounded's programmes, is running from Warrington to Ipswich for our wounded ex-servicemen and women. He's hoping to complete the 210 mile journey in just 5 days! You can support Kyle here. (Photo: Ipswich Star)
Duncan is running the New Forest Marathon
After leaving the Army, Duncan received support from our Home Straight programme which aims to secure positive employment outcomes for unemployed veterans.This year, in order to support Walking With The Wounded's ex-servicemen and women regain their much deserved independence, Duncan is running the New Forest Marathon on 10th September 2017. Duncan will be running the epic 26 miles with friends Gary, JC and Jed... but to add to the challenge, they will each be carrying 35lb weights in their rucksacks and running in their hiking boots!! You can support Duncan and the team here.
Jordan from Durham University took part in the 'Tri-48'
Jordan, who walked to the Somme for our wounded ex-servicemen and women last year, has once again raised crucial funds for WWTW by taking part in Durham University's 'Tri-48 hours' triathlon event on 8-10th June 2017. Thank you Jordan!
