Walking Home For Christmas 2021
We have a new mission this Christmas – to ensure no-one is left behind from lockdown. Your mission is therefore to support all those who served and deserve our help by walking home or somewhere important to you to raise vital funds. The more creative the better, anytime 10-20 December. Remember, small steps can make a big difference.
Walking Home For Christmas is Walking With The Wounded's annual, nationwide walking challenge to support our work with the NHS - empowering ex-military and their families who are in a downward spiral due to poor mental health to thrive once more.
Over the past seven years, thousands of people and businesses have done their own, memorable, solo and team walks. They've walked home, to a war memorial, to their old barracks, carried a Christmas tree to a friend. All manner of walks, getting out and showing support for those who have served.
The coronavirus crisis has created huge challenges for us as a charity to be able to continue supporting ex-military and their families in need of urgent mental health support. But this event can be COVID-compliant. It will be rewarding, memorable, exhilarating and impactful.
The gritty reality is that your participation will help save jobs, homes and lives.
"I just can't thank WWTW enough - you've changed my life and my family's life. My role as a partner and father is now far better than I could ever have imagined. I felt a huge weight had been lifted. The nightmares and the sound of children screaming stopped."
Shaun, ex Grenadier Guard & WWTW beneficiary who served in Afghanistan.
That's worth stepping out of your comfort zone for.
