On Sunday 2nd October, Brian Wood MC, former Colour Sergeant will pay tribute to our fallen 890 British Lives lost in the Iraq, Afghanistan and Falklands war (40th anniversary) conflicts by starting his Ultimate Sacrifice challenge pledging to run a total of 917 miles (35 Marathons in 35 days) dedicating every mile to our fallen comrades, this is 255 extra people, and miles than last year.
Brian Wood MC is running in aid of the charity ‘Walking With The Wounded’. Walking With The Wounded is a leading military charity which recognises those who served, whether mentally wounded, socially wounded or physically wounded, they deserve the care, support and means they and their families need to function in society, serving in the communities in which they live, reigniting their sense of purpose and making a positive contribution again.
They do four things: employment, mental health, care coordination and volunteering which are saving jobs, homes, relationships and lives for the Veterans who are struggling since leaving the military.
They have adapted and will continue to support the ex-service community during this difficult time.
Walking With The Wounded have worked in partnership with the NHS for many years and during this period they will continue those partnerships to respond wherever possible to support the incredible NHS.
