JENNEVOLVE - Jen Price's Charity Challenge for the Veterans' Foundation
Published 10:28am on 27 Apr 2022
Maj Jen Price of the Royal Artillery, is currently fundraising for the Veterans' Foundation.
Jen is about to start Lands End to Jon O Groats (on 7th May), and Kilimanjaro is on 6th June. Read on... but sponsor her NOW!
The challenge she has set herself is to complete 12 arduous challenges in 12 months in 2022. The challenges are multi-discipline and include a canoeing marathon, an ironman, a multistage ultra-marathon, and she is cycling the length of the UK. None of them are events she has ever completed before!
In total she will cover over 2500km (not including all of the training!) and climb 2 of the 7 Summits.
So far she has completed 4 of 12 having just finished the Devizes to Westminster international canoe race where she competed under the Royal Artillery Banner as the only ladies' doubles team. It took them 29 hours and Jen said it is the hardest thing she has ever done.
The Veterans' Foundation (VF) is one of the country's fastest-growing military charities; they work with hundreds of smaller charities and charitable organisations across the UK that share their passion: to provide a better life for our Armed Forces family who are in need. The VF supports 5 charity hubs (combatting physical injury, family and remembrance, mental health, homelessness and poverty, care and wellbeing, education and employment),
The VF supports over 300 charities and has provided over £10 million in grants.
