Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
My Name is Jon and this is my endurance partner 'Otto'. Otto is a husky x dog and I am a former soldier in the Parachute Regiment.
We run Endurance races for charity and have so far since 2010 raised over £10k for various military charities that has included Help for Heroes and Combat Stress to name a few.
Our chosen charity this time is the Parachute Regiment charity, and being ex Para Regt and upon hearing about it, was only natural I would decide to chose them. I started raising money for them when I was asked if I could run the D Day Normandy Ultra Marathon in their name and we are proud (& honoured) to wear the colours of the regiment both in Ottos harness and our dog equipment.
On the 1st January 2015 the Parachute Regiment Charity & the Afghanistan Trust joined forces to become one charity 'SUPPORT OUR PARAS'
Up until 1st January 2015 Jon & Otto have raised over £2,600 for the Parachute Regiment Charity and will continue to do so with a series of events - I ams sure you will agree that these are amazing endurance events not only for a human but for a family pet to take on.
