Hi All, thanks for the invite to join. SUPPORT OUR PARAS is the trading name of The Parachute Regiment and Airborne Forces Charity; we support The Parachute Regiment and Airborne Forces through the welfare of veterans, serving soldiers and their families and through the maintenance of its regimental efficiency, ethos, spirit and heritage.

Based in RHQ PARA, Colchester we are surrounded by the Airborne brothers we are here to support. We are a small team who work hard to look after our soldiers and their families in many different ways; from food hampers for our veterans at Christmas to helping those leaving to retrain. We also fund memorials, mobility equipment, adventure training and mental health support, among many other things. For more details, please visit https://supportourparas.org/

Our main annual fundraising event is the PARAS'10, a 10 mile race based on the 10-miler from P Coy test week. Entries are open to military and civilian alike and offer people the opportunity to test themselves against the Regiment's standards. Our events are unique in that we are lucky enough to have the support of our soldiers for the races - if you are in depot at the time, you may well be marshalling one of our events! We'll be opening registrations for 2021 soon, should any of you wish to give the races a go https://paras10.com/

Fantastic.

What we can do keep this thread running as a notice board essentially. So feel free to post any fitness challenges/ charity events here. I’m more than certain we can muster together a Paras.uk contingent to take part and help raise some money.

Mega, would be great to get you guys involved.

Can you complete 1,940 burpees in the month of April to support our Paras? In honour of the year Airborne Forces were formed, SUPPORT OUR PARAS challenges you to complete 1,940 burpees throughout the month of April. April also marks 15 years since The Parachute Regiment was first deployed to Afghanistan. Although we have not been in theatre for a number of years, the scars and trauma many soldiers suffered there still lives with them. Maintaining good mental health is just as important as maintaining our physical health, but for soldiers it is often difficult to talk about some of their experiences. Help us to help them. SUPPORT OUR PARAS is there to help any member of The Parachute Regiment or Airborne Forces talk about their experiences and get them the help they need.

Joining instructions
The 1940 Burpee Challenge is free to sign up to but is limited to a maximum of 300 people. Entrants must raise a minimum of £100 in order to get their hands on one of our special limited edition Challenge medals.

To sign up and start fundraising, visit https://virginmoneygiving.com/fund/1940burpees
