Story

The 6th of June 2024 marks the 80th anniversary of D-Day, when Allied forces mounted the largest amphibious invasion the world has ever witnessed. The bravery and sacrifice of those people in securing the peace and freedom we enjoy today should never be forgotten.  Join us for an individual personal challenge during 2024 of either running, swimming, walking or cycling to remember those that crossed the Channel to start the liberation of Europe 80 years ago. Not only will we remember and honour the fallen that did not return home, but we will also remember the living who returned home with combat exhaustion and lived with the traumatic experiences from the war. Let us be reminded of the veterans of all wars who suffer(ed) with Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Some of these veterans are no longer with us through battling their own demons and at Who Dares Cares we always go a little further in supporting veterans suffering with PTSD in combating their condition and saving life's. We can only continue to support our veterans with your help in fundraising vital funds during campaign R1944. The fundraising will make all the difference in supporting our veteran’s and making a difference to their lives as you never know who may be fighting a hard battle on the inside.
