Why run for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity?

Taking part in the Born Survivor Challenge will help us raise vital funds so that all serving soldiers, former soldiers and their families can have the opportunity to avoid hardship and enjoy independence and dignity. The overall scale, breath and range of the charity’s support is vast. We help serving families cope with a sudden bereavement or traumatic loss; provide wide-ranging support to wounded soldiers, many of whom will need increasing financial assistance for decades to come; provide help with housing, education and training for employment for soldiers and veterans of all ages; we are there for older veterans and their widows or widowers when they find themselves lonely or isolated.
