Taking on some of the most physically and mentally challenging tasks both in the UK and overseas the Hire a Hero Gorillas will be donating all of the funds they raise to Hire a Hero to support the charity in serving those who have served us.
Not only can you show your support by donating to their fundraising page but the Hire a Hero Gorillas are also looking for some brave fundraisers and supporters to take part in some or all of the challenges over the next 12 months alongside them.
The plan of action has been set and is as follows:
15th September 2013 – The Great North Run
5th/6th October 2013 – Tough Mudder
November 2013 – Yorkshire 3 peaks in 12 hours
December 2013 – 1 million KG Body Pump
January 2014 – Mystery challenge! You Decide!
February 2014 – Mount Kilimanjaro
March 2014 – 3 Peaks
April 2014 – Coast to Coast bike ride
May 2014 – Hadrian’s Wall Walk
June 2014 – River Tyne Kayak
July 2014 – The Cheviot Peaks
August 2014 – Mauna Kea (tallest mountain in the world from foot to peak)
The Hire a Hero Gorillas welcome and encourage all to get involved in as many or as little of the scheduled tasks as you feel brave enough to tackle.
If you are interested in taking part or would like more information on a specific challenge then get in touch with the event organiser Haydn Richards at email@example.com or any member of the Hire a Hero team.
