JOIN RESILIENT NUTRITION'S 12 MILES OF CHRISTMAS
Challenge yourself to the ‘12 miles of Christmas’ on 12th December in partnership with Resilient Nutrition.
Walking Home For Christmas is Walking With The Wounded's annual, nationwide walking challenge to support ex-military and their families in need of urgent mental health care who face a new battlefield in the form of the pandemic.
We’re asking you to join us on the 12th December for your own 12 miler, whether this is solo, with your families or in a small (socially distanced) team. Walk home, somewhere important to you, or just explore somewhere new. The more creative the better…there will be additional competitions along the way!
To go one further, Resilient Nutrition co-founder and CEO Ali Macdonald is looking for other business leaders to join him on one of a dozen consecutive 12 milers he'll be doing to support Walking with the Wounded.
How your money helps
The money you raise will be used by Walking With The Wounded to support ex-military in need of mental health care including through work with our principal partner the NHS. Our programmes have been independently reviewed twice - showing that our therapy has a lasting impact, empowering our beneficiaries to thrive once more.
Every £75 raised can fund a 1-2-1 online or face-to-face therapy session for a veteran or family member - with a therapist allocated within a week.
