Yorkshire based businessman planning to run Polar Circle Marathon in aid for amputee ex-forces men and women.
Robert Kaiser, CEO of Yorkshire based body armour manufacturer PPSS Group, is facing a rather very cold challenge this October. Robert is hoping to raise at least £5,000 for the Pilgrim Bandits, a charity dedicated to taking ex-forces amputees on challenging expeditions www.pilgrimbandits.org
Robert Kaiser said:
It’s shameful how little has been done for those who have served and protected this country. I am running the Polar Circle Marathon to raise awareness and financial support these guys.
Weather conditions and temperatures in Greenland vary significantly, so Robert is aiming to get himself in the best possible shape for this challenge. His current training regime includes, breaking-dawn marches for several miles carrying a 50lb backpack and running 13 miles on a Sunday morning.
Robert Kaiser added:
I really would like to appeal to everyone, local businesses and anyone who shares my passion for the support of the Armed Forces, and especially for those whose lives have been turned upside down due to serious injuries or loss of limbs. I also want to highlight how brave and mentally strong many of these injured service men are. Where most civilians would have given up, these guys just take the challenge on the chin and simply adapt, without whining. They are an inspiration to all of us.
