On Sunday 19 June 2011, Lt (SCC) Joe Thurland and Sgt (SCC) Pete Gurney plan to speed march 26 Miles around their home town of Cheltenham.
26 Miles...cross country...speed marching...all in aid of The Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund (RMCTF). This fantastic charity is helping Royal Marines young and old, by hopefully raising £6 million by 28th October 2014, the 350th Anniversary of the formation of the Royal Marines.
Joe and Pete have been members of Cheltenham Royal Marines Cadet Detachment for some years, and would like to contribute just a small amount to this great charity. They may regret speed marching a full 26 miles, but they are sure the pain and hardship will be worth it! With a bit of Commando Spirit they'll make it to the end!
Please give us a hand, by making a contribution, however small it is...and help us reach our target of £2000! We are proud to wear the uniform of the Royal Marines, and would like to give something back to the Royal Marines family, which has supported us and many other Royal Marines Cadets.
