SAS: Who Dares Wins start to compete in SSAFA Midlands Soldier 30:30

 

SSAFATV Star and SAS veteran, Ollie Ollerton, is best known for his recent role in the popular show SAS: Who Dares Wins where he put contestants through a series of endurance tasks. He is now taking on a brand new personal challenge to support SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity.

Ollie is a keen supporter of SSAFA and works closely with his local branch in particular, remembering that giving back to the military community is of vital importance.

On 17th February the challenge kicks off, consisting of a 30 mile or 30 km trek across the beautiful Uttoxeter countryside whilst wearing 30lb backpacks, teams of four will compete to cross the finishing line.

This year, there is also an adjusted 14:18 route for teams wishing to take on a less daunting challenge, where trekkers will cover 14km carrying 18lb packs.

Any teams taking up this challenge will be raising money for SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity. The charity has been providing lifelong support to our Forces and their families since 1885. Every year staff and volunteers help more than 67,000 people, from Second World War veterans to young men and women who have served in more recent conflicts.
