RfS UK to Ukraine Challenge

Since Russia launched a full-scale military invasion into Ukraine on February 24, 2022, fighting has caused nearly three thousand civilian deaths and internally displaced more than seven million people, according to the United Nations. The conflict has forced another five million Ukrainians to flee to neighbouring countries – the majority of whom have arrived in Poland, a NATO country where the United Kingdom and other allies are helping to accommodate the influx of refugees. A global mission has taken place providing relief to those wishing to flee, and for those who remain in their home country.

A number of roads in the southern and eastern provinces of Ukraine have been devastated following attacks by Russian bombs. Teaming up with a group of ex military personnel, we aim to fundraise £10,000 to go towards the purchase and operation of a number of 4×4 pick-up trucks and ambulances to deliver crucial fuel and medical supplies towards those affected by Russian aggressions in these areas. 

The team have established a supply chain and have already delivered an ambulance to Pokrovsk and a Landcruiser to Luhansk. We want to help them on this mission and raise as much money as we possibly can to contribute.

To do this we’ve challenged our team of military spouses to travel the equivalent distance from the UK to the Ukraine (1539 miles/2477km) by running, cycling, rollerblading and walking; these are just some of the ways we will cover the distance. We aim to cover this distance by September and will be posting regular updates on our progress as a team. 

We encourage our audience and all who see this message to join in and help us raise the money to go towards this charitable cause and provide relief to those who need it most.
