Starting on the 1 June 2020, the challenge will see RSM Lightfoot visit 40 detachments along his 750 mile journey.
RSM is working hard to raise as much money as he can for both Young Minds and the Army Cadet Force Association, collecting funding via his Go Fund Me page and in person along the route. He hopes to raise £10,000 by the end of the challenge.
RSM said: “I have undertaken this challenge to showcase and unite the cadet forces all over the country from the most Northern detachment in the Shetland Isles to the most Southern UK detachment on the Jersey. This epic challenge will take me about 45 days of continuous walking. Some of the days are 30 miles long and some as short as 15 miles. I want something not just to invest in. I want something to believe in. I want to show my appreciation to all the cadet forces and all the adult volunteers who make it possible."
