As we face the countdown to our gruelling seven day challenge, with no rest and minimal sleep, we urge you to follow our progress and spread the word about our event. Your support, whether that be via a donation or by simply sharing our message on social media, is key to the success of our event, and without you our efforts will be fruitless. Such an extreme event as this takes months of planning, with a team of people supporting from all angles, both internally by teams in the forces and externally by specialist companies who are donating their time and efforts to support the cause. Let us not kid ourselves, this challenge will have a massive impact on the life of Major Powers over the next few months, as he prepares to push his body and mind to the absolute extreme.
Please do follow our progress in as many ways as possible, and help us to reach more people by sharing and liking the content on our social media channels. Over the coming months we aim to expand our accounts with fresh and engaging posts, sharing our vision behind the event and the personal stories which motivate us to strive to make a difference. We are sure time will fly over the coming months, as training regimes ramp up and we undergo recces at potential locations for each of the day long disciplines, which include abseiling, road cycling, canoeing, climbing, mountaineering, off road mountain biking and running. These events will all be completed for a full day, on consecutive days with no rest and minimal sleep, which will really push Major Powers to breaking point, both physically and mentally.
As we count down the time until we complete our challenge, let us not forget about those veterans who struggle to tackle the past each and every day, suffering alone and in silence. By raising donations for the country’s leading veteran mental health charity, we really do hope to make a difference, helping those dedicated servicemen and women to face their anxiety and take on the future. The service that our chosen charity provides is priceless to those veterans involved, providing free peer to peer support, treatment programmes and helplines to servicemen and women in their time of need. Get involved, share our passion and let us all work together to make a real difference.
