Andy North heads a team including Dave Edwards, to support our British Forces and their families who have been effected by the challenges and sometimes tragic circumstances.

"In May 2010 we successfully completed 12 marathons, 12x60 miles cycling, 12 days, 1,000 miles Lands End to John O'Groats. This year we have raised the bar even further and have added a new challenge of Kayaking over the English Channel."
