Story

In my role as Commanding Officer (Reserves)
of 32 Signal Regiment I aim to raise funds for both Poppy Scotland and the Royal Signals Benevolent Fund (RSBF).  My aim is to raise £1918 as a minimum. 

I thought it would be relevant to march with weight (20kg) on the following events with a culminated total of 100miles (one per year of the centenary).  Any funds will be split equally between the 2018 Poppy Pledge and Royal Signals Benevolent Fund.  The events I intend to enter are as follows:

Lanyard - 40 miles (28/04).  Race the Sun - 1 event - 11.5 Miles (11/05).  Yorkshire 3 Peaks - 24 Miles (TBC).  Airborne March, Oosterbeek - 9 miles (01/09). Glasgow Half Marathon (30/09) and Personal Fitness Test - 1.5 Miles (11/11).
