Walking With The Wounded was established in 2010 to support all veterans with physical, mental or social injuries to gain the skills and qualifications required to develop new careers outside the military, re-integrate into society and provide long-term security for themselves and their families.
The charity promotes awareness of the challenges faced by all those living with disability by undertaking high profile expeditions with wounded veterans and serving soldiers that are entirely funded by corporate sponsorship. For 2015 the challenge has been brought back to the UK with the Walk of Britain. The expedition will see four British and two US wounded veterans walk 1,000 miles across mainland Britain, starting in Scotland on August 22nd and finishing at Buckingham Palace on November 1st.
Helyx was delighted to have had the opportunity to support the walk, this week, when the Walk of Britain Team summited Pen-Y-Fan along with five Helyx staff and Bella the MD’s dog. We were able to donate £600 on the day and anyone who is interested in finding out more, or donating by buying a mile, can go to website following the link below.
Helyx is proud to support the Walk of Britain and wishes the Team all the best for the remaining weeks of the walk.
