Help for Heroes
Hello and Welcome from Edwin Cooper
After successfully completing this challenge and currently recovering on the Orkney Islands, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support, kind words and, of course, donations towards such a great charity. In the coming week I intend to write up my adventure including the highs, the lows and how it felt to get from Home to Home in just seven days. Many thanks again. EdwinTHE CHALLENGE 25 - 31 MARCH 2012 - This Easter I have challenged myself to cycle from Falmouth to the Orkney Islands for Help for Heroes…from my Home in Cornwall to my Home (where I was born and raised) in Scotland (hence H2H for H4H). Slightly further than Land’s End to John O’Groats and cycling around 1000 miles, I’m also training hard to complete it in less than 7 days! Consuming 8000 calories and cycling approx 150 miles a day, I’m determined to raise funds for Help for Heroes. Serving in the Royal Navy and aware of the dangers of service life, this fund does exactly what it says on the tin…helping wounded servicemen and women. I greatly appreciate your support and please can you give generously towards this superb charity and to buoy me on during my training and then the epic challenge! WHY H4H - Military personnel are the type of people that have adventurous spirit, enjoy sports, the outdoors and typically pushing themselves physically. Injuries incurred on the front-line are horrific and usually have severe consequences. When they arrive back in the UK, the H4H charity, with others, does a tremendous job rehabilitating them so they can lead a normal life again. And as importantly, H4H do a sterling effort getting these guys back doing what they love – back running, playing rugby, cycling and generally enjoying the outdoors and feeling good about themselves. So, this is a physical challenge to help people who, for reasons of fighting on the front-line (for us!), now have major difficulties to overcome every day.
About Help for Heroes
Help for Heroes offers comprehensive support to those who have suffered life-changing injuries and illnesses whilst serving our country. This is provided through grants to individuals, other Service charities, capital build projects and our four Recovery Centres across the UK, in Catterick, Colchester, Tidworth and Plymouth. These will offer support for life. The money raised by the hugely generous public has been used to support our wounded, but there is still so much more to do. Soldiers, sailors and airmen who are injured today will still need our support tomorrow and in the days that follow, for the rest of their lives. They are still battling and we won't let them battle alone.
