Recently one of our fundraisers got in touch to let us know he was aiming to take on the Fan Dance Challenge and raise funds for Hire a Hero.
With the challenge now compete and having raised £601.25, Rick tells us more about his experience:
“I have no military experience but I’m very interested and grateful for what they do. I took part in the Fan Dance Challenge because I have never done anything like this before and I wanted to see how far I could push myself and to get an idea of what a soldier has to go through to get into the best Special Forces Regiment in the world.
I chose to raise money for Hire a Hero after a friend told me about the charity. After looking into what the charity can do for our service men and woman I had to do my bit….it was the least I could do.
The best bits of my challenge was the camaraderie with people helping each other and pushing each other along, and receiving my finnishers patch.The worst bit was coming back up Jacob’s ladder that was a real lung buster!
After I completed my challenge I felt a sense of achievement and proud that I could help our service men and woman by raising money for the charity hire a hero.”
A big thank you to Rick for chosing to support Hire a Hero.
