As part of the Air Cadet Junior Leader Course, we are trying to raise money whilst conquering the Yorkshire Three Peaks in memory of John Thornton, through the JTYAF charity.
John Thornton was a previous top graduate of the Junior Leader Course IV, and later joined the Royal Marines as an Officer. However, he was tragically killed in Afghanistan in 2008; leading to the formation of the John Thornton's Young Achievers Foundation.
10 years on from his tragic death we are still able to remember him through the amazing work provided by this Charity, which supports so many young people from a wide range of Youth Organisations.
On Sunday 18th February, we are hoping to complete the Challenge within 12 hours whilst carrying 10Kg of 'dead weight', and it would be fantastic if you could support us and this incredible Charity.
