Gaz Brown's Fan Dance Route Challenge

Gaz plaque

Gaz Brown's Challenge for DAZ'S Den with me&dee, Maria Hanson Foundation, raising funds for holidays for injured military in Daz's Den. Gaz Brown completed the fan dance route challenge at the Brecon yesterday along with his support team Barry Dixon, Malcolm Hes Heslop, Paul Ormston, Gary Richie Richards, Tom Hurst, Anthony Garrity.

They could not have picked a worse day for the challenge, they faced heavy downpours, gale force winds, hail, poor visibility. By the time they got to the half way point they were drenched and greeted us with "if it's not raining then its not training." Had a hot drink change of clothes and off they went.

Also Julian Allen who is also one of our charity Champions, who took charge of communications and had organized their drinks and food at half way point and had had to change his clothes several times. When they all arrived at base even they were tired and wet through, they all had the look of satisfaction on their face as a job well done, amazing. Kimberley Falconer Allen, Mark Harrison. Sue and Frank and myself had the easy task of being there to support such a great bunch of guys. The day left Us feeling very Humbled but oh so very proud to be part of their day. Thanks Guys x

The team would like to thank SSI Darren Harvey, Yatton Platoon Commander at Somerset Army Cadet Force who helped out with food rations and Bergens for the lads.
