A team of RAF Logistic (Drivers) on deployment in the Falkland Islands, have been walking up and down the famous long corridor at RAF Mount Pleasant, continuously, for the duration of a flight home to RAF Brize Norton (approx. 15 Hours, 30 Minutes).
The corridor is renown as being the longest in the world, meaning it is an extremely unique location to raise some money and awareness!
The event was yesterday and we completed a total of 53.8 miles walking during the 15 hours 30 minutes. An unreal figure of 99,345 steps each was achieved by the walkers along the closest spinal corridor to the Antarctic.
Their team were raising funds for two charities; Darby Rimmer MND Foundation and Crohn’s & Colitis UK, with the funds raised split between both charities. To date they have raised £1500 for the foundation.
Andy Houston, one of the walkers, told us, “Chris has inspired a lot of us (his ex colleagues at 2 MT Squadron) through his determination to attacking this illness to find a cure and that’s why we have such great support with the events. We have been on BFBS Radio and Instagram live today sharing it so hoping to get a few more donations in too.”
