Rhidian's Marching with Weight
To mark the centenary of WW1 for poppyscotland because I wanted to honour Britain's bravest
Since 1921 Poppyscotland has been supporting Scotland’s ex-Servicemen, women and their families. Whether a veteran is struggling with a life-changing battlefield injury, psychological trauma, financial hardship, homelessness or has turned to substance abuse as a way to cope, we are here to help.
Charity Registration No. SC014096
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).
