Supporting Walking with the Wounded 2024

For the fifth time, a group of courageous walkers from our team are taking on the Cumbrian Challenge on the 18th of May in support of Walking with the Wounded.

The charity provide early intervention programmes and speed up access to therapy to help change the lives of veterans and their families. They support those “who have fallen the furthest, men and women struggling with mental health issues, unemployment, homelessness or caught in police custody”.

In total, 15 members across 4 teams will take on the challenge and will help raise much needed funds for the charity. This will involve a challenging walk around the Lake District, alongside teams of veterans and other supporters. Our teams will complete either “The Tough” a 21km trail with an ascent of 1,400m or “The Tougher” a 28km distance with a 1,700m ascent through the peaks of Grasmere.

Rob Foster, who helps organise AEW’s teams each year has said: “We are excited to return to Grasmere in May, ready to conquer the Cumbrian Fells once more. Participating in the Cumbrian Challenge has become a tradition for us over the years – it’s not only an excelent team-building opportunity but also a chance to contribute to a worthy cause. Our teams are looking forward to lacing up their walking boots and raising funds in support of veterans and their families”
