Ex Pegasus Crossing

In August 2019, two Officers from 2 PARA will be attempting an endurance triathlon over three days to raise money for Support Our Paras. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/pegasuscrossing

Jamie and Matt, both Captains, wanted to recognise the 75th Anniversary of the Normandy landings and raise money for their regimental charity in doing so.

They will attempt an endurance triathlon over three days in August 2019. The event will involve:

  • 21-mile relay swim across the English Channel.
  • 150-mile bike from Calais to Bruneval (the scene of the first airborne raid).
  • 50-mile TAB from Bruneval to Pegasus Bridge (the first objective to be seized on D-Day in 1944).

The event is set to be quite a challenge and they have already raised 20% of their fundraising target before they have even set off. Can you help them towards their target? https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/pegasuscrossing
