Walking with the Wounded last news, videos and more

22.02.2018: Last year we supported more than 1,500 ex-servicemen and women, but we simply couldn’t have done it without YOU. Your involvement ensures WWTW is there for those who need us most, like Mark.




Last year we supported more than 1,500 ex-servicemen and women, but we simply couldn’t have done it without YOU. Your involvement ensures WWTW is there for those who need us most, like Mark.




Mark joined the Royal Engineers in 1987 but was medically discharged a year later. He had fallen behind in his training due to an injury and was left feeling isolated. This ultimately led to the deterioration of his mental health. Mark suffered in silence with PTSD for 28 years before ‘finding’ WWTW and receiving the support he so needed.


“It's very difficult to describe the pain of reliving a trauma and the hard road to recovery, but without this charity I would not be here today, and my two sons would go through life knowing they couldn't do anything to help. WWTW organised the best help and clinical therapy for me and were with me every step of the way through some very dark times.”


DONATE  HERE
  


 
Looking to ensure that others in the same position as him get the support they need, Mark will be running the gruelling Marathon des Sables in April. Deemed the 'toughest footrace on Earth', this ultra-marathon sees participants tackling 6 marathons in 6 days, in the blistering heat of the Sahara Desert.


“We often forget that these individuals have put their lives on the line to defend not only our country, but individuals all around the world. They do it without hesitation, without question and yet so many come home with invisible scars that are hard to heal. Two years on and I am extremely happy. Facing life with a purpose, a realisation that I am actually worthy and I do have a future.”



On behalf of Mark, WWTW and all those who you have supported, THANK YOU.  Without your involvement, we would be unable to provide the quality of service that we do and enable brighter futures for those who served on our behalf, their families and, as a result, our wider society.

Meet, walk beside, and be inspired by those who have been supported by the charity in Scotland. This event is truly unique. Reserve your place before 28th February to make use of our early-bird prices.
