Ian Waddell Steps Beyond the Limit for Combat Stress

Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by Combat_Stress, Feb 6, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I am hoping the outline of ‘The Challenge’ Ian Waddell is undertaking from 12th May to 16th May 2009 to raise funds for Combat Stress will cause you to give consideration to supporting what is without doubt an extreme endeavour of what can only be described as ‘Steps beyond the limit’.

    Ian, at 71 years of age will attempt to cover a continuous footpath that circumnavigated the Thames Basin. This path is 269 miles in length and the target is 100 hours nonstop – 6 days, 4 nights- no sleep.

    Ian will leave Westminster Abbey shortly before noon on Tuesday 12th May just before the Service to commemorate 90 years since Combat Stress has formed starts. H.R.H The Prince of Wales as patron will hopefully be in attendance.

    From London the route takes in Uxbridge, Berkhamstead, Leighton Buzzard, Milton Keynes, Daventry, Banbury, Oxford, Abingdon, Reading, Marlow, Maidenhead, Windsor as well as many smaller places. So publicity will be at its maximum throughout, giving any potential sponsor maximum coverage.

    Ian intends finishing at Combat Stress Headquarters just outside Leatherhead by 1500 hours on Saturday 16th May.

    Overall, for someone half his age, mentally and physically an enormous endeavour and hopefully you will think the same and through Ian’s efforts you will support Combat Stress.

    I thank you in advance for all your help and support. If you would like to walk with Ian some of the way to support him or wave him on at certain points please contact Kelita Groom on 01372 841616 or email her on kelita.groom@combatstress.org.uk
    Details of Ian's postitioning along the route will be available next week.
