Walk 100K in 24 hours next summer.

See the English countryside like never before, experience camaraderie like no other event and change the lives of our blind veteran heroes. 

Yorkshire - 23 June

London to Brighton - 7 July

Are you ready for a challenge?

Sign up as an individual or if 100K sounds too tough, enter as a relay, completing 25K each to collectively go the distance.

You could even tackle 100K as a team to cross the finish side by side. 

Why not sign up with some of your colleagues, family or friends? 

Registration is from just £40. Sponsorship is £300. 

We'll give you hot meals, lots of snacks and eight rest stops to recharge along the way. We'll even be there for medical support and lots of encouragement!

Walk alongide blind veterans from our gallery and receive a medal from a WWII hero. Learn more or sign up at blindveterans.org.uk/100K

Then create a JustGiving page of your own and link it with this campaign. 

Together we can raise the funds needed to ensure that noone who serves our country has to battle blindness alone. 

So what do we spend your hard earned funds on? 

We provide severely vision-impaired ex-Service men and women with the rehabilitation, training and support they need to regain their independence and discover a life beyond sight loss.

This ranges from helping them relearn vital skills to providing them with the tools they need to be independent inside and outside their homes. We give opportunities to get working-age veterans back to a career, or hobby-based art and craft, historical or other activity skills to our retired veterans. We also provide long-term nursing, residential and respite care.

In addition to this lifelong support for 4,700 blind veterans plus their families, we'd like to help more of our heroes! 

There's as many as 55,000 other blind veterans across the UK eligible for our support.

That's why we need your help! Are you up to the challenge?
