April: Guy Alcock and Robert Snuggs take on Marathon des Sables for DDMT

Amazing news: two of DDMT's most loyal supporters are taking on the Marathon Des Sables and raising money for the Trust and ICVI in memory of Dougie and Sammy Johns.  Please give them all your support.  On 31 March Guy wrote:  

"In a little over 5 days time I will be flying out to Morocco with Snuggsy to take on what is labelled “the toughest foot race on earth”  the Marathon des Sables.  Over 6 gruelling days we will be running 250km across the Sahara which equates to approximately a marathon a day with a double on day 4.   Ultra-runners (which we are not) like to call this the main event with the first 3 days seen as "warm ups."  We will be carrying all our equipment including food in temperatures upward of 50 degrees

As you have witnessed we have had the worst marathon training weather probably in the last 25 years so getting out for long runs at the weekend has been particularly soul destroying but it’s all for a good cause.  We will be raising money for three very worthy charities close to our hearts which you will find on the virgin giving page below.  CAF cheques are also welcome if you prefer

If you so wish to track our progress across the desert we will post instructions on how to do this on the sponsorship page  

Many thanks for your donations in advance.  Please feel free to forward this on to anyone who would be interested in the challenge and the cause."

The Trustees and all at DDMT wish these guys all the luck in the world and are immensely grateful. 

 

 

We would love to hear from you if you know of any soldier (whether current or past), family member or any project that might benefit from our help.
