Sgt Steph Evans of 24 Squadron RAF Brize Norton is taking on a series of challenges like no other: a year of epic fundraising events, which she’s calling ‘An Oscarordinary Challenge’ after her young son, Oscar, who has Goldenhar syndrome, a facial cranium condition.
She aims to raise £20,000 to benefit our charity and others with 12 months of walks, spinathons, decathlons and runs – including Marathon des Sables in the Sahara Desert. She also wants to raise awareness of Oscar’s condition.
Steph’s Oscarordinary year began earlier this summer, when the mum-of-two completed her first feat, running the 35 miles between RAF Brize Norton and RAF Benson, where she served as a Merlin Crewman.
Since then, she’s done a run at the Royal International Air Tattoo and taken on the Cotswold 24 in Cirencester Park, where participants have to complete as many 9km laps as possible in 24 hours.
