Story

Please do not ignore:  This is the battle of endurance, pain tolerance, atrocious stump sores, but the will to keep going!

I am striving to conquer the challenges in life no body has accomplished ever before, welcome to part one of my journey.

My army career has pushed me to my limits on many occasions, and at that time I hated the people who destroyed me. However, in hindsight I am so grateful as you have instilled in me a strength I never knew I had, and I will be eternally grateful.

I got my new leg on 23rd December 2016. So I have set myself an extremely hard challenge. 10 weeks after getting my leg I'm gonna TAB 10 miles with 10 lbs in 3 hours. It doesn't sound hard but learning to walk and achieving this will probably be the hardest thing I have ever done. So on Friday 3rd March at 0900 in Portsmouth it starts, so dig deep please. I am encouraging people to join me to raise more money for an amazing charity. 

So…. the 3rd of March at 0900 it is getting close and I need your support, whether you are there at the start or the finish, please do not dismiss the challenge that is set before me. What is more important to me is that you put your hands in your pocket, your faith in me and lets raise as much money as possible for a charity that people should be shouting about.

BLESMA, I will make sure people know who you are and what you do.
