Remembrance Day Marathon of Marathons

In memory of our fallen soldiers

Yesterday marked Remembrance Sunday, a very special date in our diaries and a day of commemoration and reflection. Our Ambassador and military veteran Carl Orme spent some of the day completing his 15th marathon of his Marathon of Marathons challenge for the charity.

Due to injuries, this marathon proved to be difficult for Carl, but as always he persevered and carried his 26.2lb rucksack for 26.2 miles. What another incredible achievement!

As a father, Carl is constantly giving us up some of his family time to support the next generation of children to be healthier, which is a real testament to the amazing person that he really is!

With 11 marathons left to complete we know Carl will need the support of all of our followers to get him across the line. Follow Carl on his journey on Instagram HERE
