Ricardo is undertaking the greatest physical challenge of his life - Project 100! In February 2023 Ricardo will walk 100 miles carrying a 100lb rucksack in under 100 hours. Ricardo's journey started in February 2022 when he began the challenge of physically preparing his mind and body for this mammoth task. During Project 100, Ricardo will push his physical and mental boundaries and destroy his limiting beliefs and aims to set a World Record for the fastest time covering 100 miles with 100lbs. You can make a donation to Ricardo's challenge by visiting his fundraising page. Ricardo's aim is to raise £10,000, of which, £1000 will be his own money.

Thank you for supporting Who Dares Cares Ricardo, all the best with your challenge and fundraising.

Burpees! We all know where we stand when it comes to burpees.... Now, just imagine doing 500 of them in one go?!
Then imagine giving yourself 88 minutes to do them?!
Now imagine doing that consecutively for 22 days?!
Just to put that into perspective that’s 11,000 burpees in 22 days!
That’s exactly what Mark and his friend Scott have achieved, all in aid of Who Dares Cares. 88 being the number of recorded UK Veteran suicides in 2020 and 22 being the highest number of US Veterans committing suicide in a single day. Mark and Scott fundraised to raise awareness of military service members taking their own lives by taking on the 500/88/22 challenge 31 January - 21 February 2022. Absolutely amazing effort Mark and Scott! Total respect, thank you for supporting Who Dares Cares.

1000 Miles Walk Challenge
George raised mental health awareness and fundraised for Who Dares Cares by walking 1000 miles from 01 November 2020 to 31 October 2021. George helped support individuals from all walks of life suffering from PTSD by encouraging them to walk with him during his Tab for Remembrance and his Walk, Talk and Brew Sessions within West Lothian, Scotland during the coronavirus pandemic. When the coronavirus lockdown was lifted, George climbed Ben Lomond, Dumyat Summit, Cobbler, Ben Vorlich and Ben Nevis in clocking up the 1000 miles. George finished the Walk1000 Challenge in style by walking 21 miles from Edinburgh Castle Esplanade to the Livingston Civic Centre War Memorial, West Lothian. George even got a mention from the Proclaimers on walking 500 miles and walking 500 more! Great achievement George, thank you for supporting Who Dares Cares.
