Walking With The Wounded
Walking With The Wounded (‘WWTW’) is a military charity established in 2010 to support the employment aspirations and vocational outcomes of our wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women, those who have been physically, mentally and socially disadvantaged by their service. WWTW recognises the inherent skills of armed service personnel and wants to compliment these qualities, as well as provide support to transfer their skills into the civilian workplace.
WWTW also host events with the aim to raise money so they can continue their vital work to support those who have been physically, mentally or socially disadvantaged by their service and assist them in gaining independence through new long-term careers outside of the military.
Craghoppers is proud to support this charity by providing technical outdoor clothing for events, such as The Grenadier Walk of Oman.
In February 2021, a team of 5 ex-military personnel and 1 currently serving, will attempt to walk across Oman at an approximate total distance of 400kms, over the course of 21 days. The expedition will run in partnership with the Omani Armed Forces, with generous support of the Royal Office of HM Sultan Haitham bin Tariq’. Furthermore, The Duke of Sussex will support the challenge as the official Expedition Patron.
The trek will start on 18th February 2021 and is set to finish on the 9th March 2021.
The aim is to demonstrate the courage and determination of those overcoming injury.
