A software development manager from bespoke unmanned vehicles specialist Consortiq has come forward in support of soldiers with PTSD.
Consortiq’s David Walters is set to take part in 2018’s Man vs Mountain event in a bid to raise £10,000 for Help For Heroes.
Walters, who will be taking part in the 22-mile race up Mount Snowdon, is part of a six-strong fundraising group, Team Easy.
The software development manager told Commercial Drone Professional: “Whilst Man vs Mountain was going to be my own physical challenge, my friend Deans was already being challenged with his own mountain, PTSD. Two tours of Afghanistan leave mental scars still present today which Dean is getting help with.”
Team Easy has set the target of raising £10,000 across 20 races. The team, which has already complete two of its challenges, will conclude its fundraising push with it’s finale event, Man Vs Mountain, in September next year.
The fundraising team, as it currently stands, has secured over 10% of its target having raised £1,220, with ROAVR UAS providing £1,000 of the grand total so far in addition to sponsorship from Renew Chiropractor Services. The team can be found on its JustGiving page.
