What is the Cumbrian Challenge?

The Cumbrian Challenge is our annual flagship fundraising event for individuals, organisations and companies who want to show their support and experience a memorable team-building weekend in the Lake District alongside our staff.

We target those who have fallen the furthest, men and women struggling with mental health issues, unemployment or homelessness. By providing early intervention programmes and speeding up access to therapy we are changing the lives of veterans and, crucially, their families.

A Historical Incentive

For the team that has raised the most by 19:00 on the 18th May, Walking With The Wounded are delighted to be able to offer complimentary spaces * on our D-day 80 Experience.

D Day landing

To commemorate the 80th anniversary of the largest amphibious operation in history ‘Operation Overlord’, that signalled the allies return to mainland Europe and the beginning of the end of the Second World War, Walking With The Wounded and Challenge The Wild are mounting an expedition to the Normandy Beaches. As part of this, a select group will be attending the experience, which includes:

  • A private tour of the home of Sir Winston Churchill Chertwell on the 5th June
  • Witnessing the expedition team land on Juno beach on the 6th June in the morning
  • A tour of the Juno & Gold beaches
  • Evening attendance of a beach of your choosing (Utah, Omaha, Gold, Sword & Juno), to witness the lighting of the ‘lamplights of peace’, the first and only time this will be done.

Our military Ambassador Dan Searson is thrilled to be managing this experience and expedition and has generously offered this prize for our Cumbrian Challenge participants. As the Second World War and the generation that fought through it sit now on the very edge of living memory, this will be a final tribute to their bravery. Be a part of history as it’s made.

* Accomodation will be provided - please contact the team for more details. Travel is not included in this offer.
