We are humbled, and so proud for everyone involved with our Virtual Run for VIA Charity on 12th July.
We managed to do 251 kilometres of walking (running and crawling) in one day across two continents, five countries and between 30 people. All this for Veterans in Action Charity.
As a team effort, we have raised and made it to our target of £2000.00, and MORE, we are now at 112% with £2240.00 (+ Gift Aid).

With great pleasure, we announce this mission completed. It is officially time to celebrate achievement as it deserves to be celebrated.

Veterans In Action | VIA Charity
Veterans In Action (VIA) is a UK based charity specialising in the social reintegration of socially excluded HM Forces Veterans.
The overriding aim of this organisation is to develop a national Veteran support framework centring on the principles of Outreach Work and Adventurous Activities, in support of the UK's Veteran community.
Therein VIA organises and staff outreach projects designed to maximise opportunities to firstly identify, then offer support to Veterans within a regional and national context.
After a veteran has been identified as an individual who might benefit from our services, we offer a range of support packages designed to encourage social participation and to a degree challenge the individual via a range of meaningful activities from fundraising to the more physical challenges engendered in Adventure Training.
As suggested our services can be divided broadly into two distinctly separate agenda, on the one hand centring on Outreach Work, whilst the other focuses specifically on Adventurous Activities.
The ALIVE Program is a three-stage process that has been developed by Veterans In Action to work on the personal development of Armed Forces veterans, some of whom have been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and others who find it difficult to adjust to civilian life.
