Do Your Own Challenge

Overview

You can take part in any event you choose and raise money for our heroes. Whether setting yourself a fitness goal, achieving a life-long ambition or marking a milestone, push yourself to the limit and help support veterans and their families at the same time.

 

 

Maybe there's a local event you've been meaning to sign up for, or why not create your own and ask friends and family to sponsor you? Your only limit is your imagination, here are a few ideas to help get you started...
