Christ College pupils and staff were on hand to wish Phil Packer MBE and his British Inspiration Trust team well as they embark on the 2013 WAAT4 Challenge in Brecon today (20th June).
Between Thursday 20th June and Saturday 22nd June, Phil Packer will lead young people from HRH The Prince of Wales’ Young Dragons initiative and Mentors from his visionary charity, the British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) into the Brecon Beacons on Day 1 of their leg.
The WAAT4 Challenge is a 40K circular team navigation challenge is set in the Brecon Beacons and features elements of two Special Forces selection routes. The 8 miles of arduous terrain that the team will walk each day is, for Phil, the equivalent of over a marathon due to his injury. Phil suffered a severe spinal chord injury when on active service in Iraq and was told he’d never walk again. He has since completed the London Marathon and other incredible challenges, and is the founder of the British Inspiration Trust.
They will finish in time to greet and present prizes to approximately 100 teams who will be completing their WAAT4 Challenge on Saturday 22nd June. Now in its fifth year, the event is organised by a small team from Dyfed- Powys Police, supported by the Brecon Mountain Rescue Team ,Wales Air Ambulance, the Gurkhas and The Castle Hotel. Their simple objective is to raise money to support good causes.
