Lee was introduced to the VetRun180 by a random call out of the blue from an old Army friend who knew Lees story and wanted to help.
Lee was introduced into the ethos of “Adventure Therapy” by the best way VetRun180 know how.
After a conversation with one of the Team Leaders Lee was in the blink of an eye found himself amongst other veterans in Swedish Lapland on the most epic adventure. Every day he felt that he had found a higher purpose, he was home and comfortable with his surroundings again thanks to the TL’s support and guidance.
Lee was then asked a few weeks after the return from Sweden if he wanted to train to become a Team Leader and within a split second the answer was an obvious yes.
Then started the planning for the recent trips and Lee was sent to get qualified in both First Aid and 4×4 training delivered as part of LANTRA by Land Rover Skipton which was absolutely fantastic being showed what the vehicles can do and handle in a testing environment.
Fast forward a few weeks and Lee was learning from TL’s on a recent Portugal Expedition which again was out of this world, he was taking on more of the Leadership roles and getting involved with Navigation and learning the equipment which was fantastic.
Lee looks forward to leading and expedition and giving back as once you have been part of the VetRun180 family you never want to stop giving back to other Veterans as you really see the benefit with your own eyes.
Along the way you really meet some amazing Veterans who need some guidance, support or simply need to be around other people who understand and do not judge any situation which is what we ultimately are all about supporting each other.
Lee’s story with VetRun180 is only just beginning please get in touch to join this adventure.
