Well done ROAVR | UAS who are the main sponsor for Team Easy in 2018.
Drone Stuff This Week regular, David Walters is a member of Team Easy, a group inspired by ‘Easy Company’, one of the most decorated units of World War Two.
In their own words a band of misfits that have come together to take the biggest challenge of their lives in support of their friend Dean & Help for Heroes.
Three years ago Dean, then a solider, had a safe return from his last tour of Afghanistan.
“One of the strangest yet satisfying feelings is flying away from that place. This Man Vs Mountain challenge is our way to give some support back and to raise money for the charity in respect for all of those injured or killed in any war or conflict.” – Dean
Although Dean returned without any physical injuries, the mental challenges he faces daily due to his PTSD is something even the strongest of minds would struggle with.
So Team Easy are off to conquer Snowdon, a mountain in North Wales. But not just a straight forward accent. The team are doing the full 35km starting on the coast at Caernarfon before climbing Snowdon to then descend and finish in Llanberis. You can see some of the route in our Visit Wales video HERE.
You can follow their progress with Team Training and Events on Facebook and Instagram as they prepare by racing at many event during 2018.
