- Event postponed from May 2021 until 11 September 2021.
- Record no. of teams from across the UK already on board.
- Each team supports a veteran back into independence
- Chance to meet, walk with and be inspired by WWTW beneficiaries.
The Cumbrian Challenge, a flagship fundraising event for leading military charity, Walking With The Wounded, has been rescheduled to September 2021 due to the pandemic.
The much-loved weekend, now in its 9th year, has seen nearly 1,000 teams take on the fells above Grasmere and raise more than £1million for ex-military in need of the charity’s mental health care, employment and care coordination programmes.
More than 150 teams are already signed up to the 2021 event after the 2020 edition was postponed.
It is hoped that by the Autumn, outdoor events will be able to take place safely and the revised date creates a new opportunity for more people to register and show their support for the Armed Forces Covenant by taking part in a memorable team-building weekend walking alongside beneficiaries of the charity.
Fergus Williams, WWTW CEO, said:
“This is an extraordinary event which lifts spirits and brings people together to support the cause. The right thing is for us to wait out for September and it means more teams can get involved, use the event to spend quality time together in the majestic surrounds of Grasmere and take inspiration from the wounded ex-military they will meet and walk alongside.”
