  • Kyle, 29, served two tours of Afghanistan as a Para Engineer.
  • Plans to run 210 miles from Warrington to Ipswich in just 5 days.

Walking With The Wounded (WWTW) is exceptionally proud of beneficiary, Kyle, who is planning to run from Warrington to Ipswich in just 5 days. Kyle will be starting his 210 mile journey from Warrington on Monday 4th September, aiming to run 42 miles per day.

Kyle served with 9 Parachute Squadron RE (Royal Engineers) and served 2 tours of Afghanistan.

Kyle has explained on his Just Giving page: “I am trying to raise as much money as possible… for PTSD victims.” He is hoping to raise £1000 for the military charity Walking With The Wounded, which supports physically, mentally and socially wounded ex-servicemen and women back into independence by assisting them into sustainable employment and helping them to reintegrate back into society. He has already raised £645, so is well on his way to achieving his target. Thanks to his fundraising efforts, he has already supported one ex-serviceman or woman through Head Start.

Head Start is Walking With The Wounded’s mental health programme. Via a national network of therapists, the programme funds private face-to-face therapy for those with mild to moderate mental health difficulties.

About Walking With The Wounded

Established in 2010, Walking With The Wounded provides vulnerable veterans’ independence through employment.

WWTW recognises the inherent skills of our armed service personnel and wants to compliment these qualities, as well as provide support to transfer their skills into the civilian workplace.  We offer assistance through our programmes to those vulnerable veterans who have been physically, mentally or socially disadvantaged by their service and assist them in gaining independence through new long term careers outside of the military.  This includes providing support to homeless veterans and veterans in the Criminal Justice System, areas which are too often ignored.

The outcome? Sustainable employment and independence for themselves and their families.
