W02 Gaz ODonnell GM* - The Longest Pull Charity Event

#1
Not sure if this is already on ARRSe.

A very worthy event to help a fallen colleague's family.

Please go on the link and support by either being there or by donating.

The Longest Pull

On St Georges Day, 23rd April 2009. The military bomb disposal community will be conducting a number of challenge events to raise money for the children of WO2 Gaz O'Donnell GM+ who was sadly killed in action in Afghanistan in September last year. The bomb disposal teams are raising money through sponsorship and donations.


The day will consist of two challenge events.
First each team will pull a bomb disposal truck over a one mile distance on the Abingdon airfield main runway.


Second each team will take it in turn pulling an even heavier truck from Abingdon to the home of 11 EOD Regt RLC at Vauxhall Barrcks, Didcot. The route will pass through Drayton, Milton and Milton Park before moving on to the Broadway, Didcot. Please click on the map image for a more detailed view of the timings and route. Timings are approximate and will be updated live online via our Twitter feed (seen on the right).


Please support this challenge event either by donating through this website or showing support on the day by lining the route. Every donation gratefully accepted. Your PayPal donation will be paid into the regiment PRI account.

I couldn't get time off work to go as I live near by. I worked with Gaz at Bracht, so I'm gutted I couldn't offer support on the day.
