VetRun180 is a Charity that takes physically and mentally injured veterans on challenging expeditions around the world, to re-invoke the sense of adventure and teamwork. We provide ‘adventure therapy’ and a simple concept proven by the testimonies from the veterans we have helped. During and after an expedition the veterans have a more positive mind set and future outlook.
Before deploying on any expedition, we train each team before leaving. All veterans attend a two day training course at Land Rover Experience. The course consists of a Lantra Off-Road driving course and a First Aid at Work Course, both of which give recognised qualifications. The course gives veterans the opportunity to familiarise themselves with our vehicles, get used to working as part of a team again and to get to know the other veterans they will be travelling with. Every team member can start the expedition with the knowledge and confidence for the expedition.
We are in the process of organising another Vetrun180 Expedition. In September 2021, in Land Rover Defenders starting from Dunattor Castle on the West Coast of Scotland, a group of Veterans will travel across Scotland to Ardnamurchan Lighthouse. The week long trip will be preceded, as with all our expeditions, with all veterans taking a Lantra 4×4 driving course and a first aid at work course at Land Rover Experience.
Are you a veteran who could benefit from one of our trips? If so please contact us through the website contact page.
VetRun180 is made up of four Trustees who all bring different experience and skills to run the Charity. We also have veterans who have benefited from VetRun180 expeditions so much they have stepped up to be team leaders on expeditions. As we grow we want veterans helping veterans.
