On our 6 month deployment we wanted to raise money for SUPPORT OUR PARAS because those in need of our support have given so much.

Story

The idea came when we were discussing our deployment in the Warrant Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess bar. We wanted to conduct a charity event and we wanted to make it big. 6 months is a long time and we thought: why not do something every single day for 6 months?

Kabul to Colchester walking route on google maps is 4,104 miles and it made sense that we would do that, at a cost of 23 miles a day on average for 180 days per individual. A minimum of 4 miles must be running and the remainder can be achieved on exercise bike or rowing machine. It’s going to be tough to maintain and when we miss a day we’ll have to catch it back up. It’s a small price to pay to help those who have served us faithfully and selflessly whilst risking their lives.

For families and friends we are going to post our weekly totals and mark our progress on a map. It’ll be a visual way of tracking us back home as the tour goes on. We’ll also include photos and the occasional video diary to help tell our story.

Please be generous and support us in raising funds for a really important cause. Veterans need help and Support Our PARAs gets the money and support directly to those in need.
