Benjamin's nomination story

Ben is an inspiration to all that know him as someone who is going above and beyond the limits of his own physical and mental capabilities to help those in dire need.

He is performing 21 challenges in 21 months in order to raise money for Help for Heroes. He is paying for his own race entry fees and transport to all events to ensure that the all the money raised goes to H4H.

He's already completed challenges like, climbing Kilimanjaro, and the following year will see more of the same hard work and determination for those in need, from the 3 peaks to the gruelling Dubai marathon.

This opportunity would not only raise the profile of the work he is doing for charity, but would also be a great way to acknowledge him personally and the difference he is making.
