Weʼve raised £170 to support the PentUp foundation (http://pentup.org.uk/) and veteran's charity Combat Stress.
- Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, United Kingdom
- Funded on Tuesday, 16th January 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
PentUp is a modern pentathlon competition raising money on behalf of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) charities, for the therapy and treatment of serving and retired British military personnel.
The idea is simple: by competing in a multi-discipline sport (swimming, fencing, show jumping and combined run & shoot), we can provide the veterans with a therapeutic environment and have some fun at the same time.
The inaugural PentUp event is taking place at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst on October 14, 2017, with a view to it becoming an annual event. It is the first time that a multi-discipline sport has been used as a form of recovery.
Competitors will be split into eight teams consisting of: veterans, civilians, clinicians, and an experienced team captain who will not compete - they’re on hand purely to provide tactical advice and patch up wounds.
To find out more about the event and how you can watch please go to http://pentup.org.uk/ Tickets are also available for the black tie dinner in the evening.
In the meantime, here's some pictures of the torture, er... I mean sporting venues.
Run, shoot, swim, fence, show jump... what could possibly go wrong?!
