Walking With The Wounded

The Race

The Race


3 teams, 335km, 16 days, -35°C, constant winds, life changing injuries. This is not your average race!

Three teams of wounded servicemen and women are embarking upon on one of the most high profile expeditions of modern times, racing across 3° to the Geographic South Pole. Wounded from the UK, the US and the Commonwealth (Australia and Canada) will embark on this grueling challenge.

Why? To show the world the extraordinary courage and determination of the men and women who have been wounded while serving our countries, and to remind us all of the help and support we owe them.

When? Following extensive training, from cold weather training in Iceland in March, to team training through the summer, and a final session of snow preparation in October, the teams will fly to Antarctica in November. They aim to reach the South Pole around 17th December 2013.

  1. These men and women are truly an inspiration. I watched the video after seeing your post.

  2. I was invited to a Multiple Sclerosis group event last evening thus was unable to listen to The Call. I was so looking fwd to listening to Anthony talk of his p;anned work in the community during the Global Peace Conference. Anyway a transcript or link to The Call is available from last evening would be gr8? !

  3. God bless you, dear and beautiful Donna Schuller. I want to thank you for the above scripture from Joshua 1:7. What a great inspiration to be reminded that when we follow God with all of our heart, all that we do will be successful. What a great promise. God is a faithful God, always faithful to those who are faithful to Him. I want to also say that I love all of the Schuller family so much. My best friend and I watch Bobby each Sunday on Hour of Power. What a huge blessing and joy he is to our lives. I pray for God's abundant recompense for all you have done and are doing for His Kingdom. In Jesus mighty name it is so. Have an abundant week, Schuller family. With love, Helen/DallasTX

  4. May God bless the veterans as they embark on the challenging adventure.

  5. Anyone missed Nov 15 The Call? I was away so listened to the link Donna sent and I recommend all to get a link from Donna. Gr8 55 minutes and so uplifting for the whole family to hear!

  6. This is one of the positive things we need to make to help returning vets adjust and clear the awful memories perhaps. PTSD has seen 4 vets in Canada take their own life this past week. We need to help those who helped us and others. Cutbacks in challenging times economically lead to cutting the most vulnerable in all walks of life be it in business or defense budgets. We must cut a ship or plane or tank not a vet's desk job as it clearly can be the tipping point!. Let us pray for all our vets and their loved ones.

    Father, I pray that you stay even closer to those who tried to help in troubled places and saw terrible things. They are home but the memories are in their minds. The soldiers and their loved ones need you and so do we all, as we relate to the soldiers in understanding and helping them. Thank you for your Blessings. Amen.

  7. They did it! Amazing feat in unbelievable conditions but they succeeded!
    God is blessing them. Donna
