Driven to Extremes is an organisation that supports military veterans suffering from PTSD by taking them on challenging vehicle adventures to aid their recovery.
Where as some activities such as Polar trekking or Atlantic rowing can allow too much thinking time, vehicle expeditions can cross continents in a matter of days. The relentless pace ensures that the veterans are overwhelmed with new and rapidly changing experiences, which helps push horrific memories to the back of their minds.
Operating in remote and challenging environments, having to work as valued members of a close-knit team and the opportunities for leadership, builds comradeship, increases self-esteem and brings back their confidence.
The Saxa Vord 4x4 Rally is a fund-raising rally to the most extreme northerly point of the UK. The 10-day driving adventure through the Scottish Highlands, North Coast 500, Orkney and Shetland Isles will be led and supported by military veterans recovering from PTSD as part of their rehabilitation.
