In February 2016 65DN successfully summited Mt. Kilimanjaro, the World’s highest freestanding mountain, to raise awareness of disability and recognise the impact of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). At 5,985m (19,336ft) high it is also the highest mountain on the African continent.
In January 2017 65DN will journey to the World’s coldest, windiest, most remote continent and attempt to summit Antartica’s highest peak, Mt. Vinson. This demanding endeavour will test the resilience and fortitude of the team to its absolute limit.
In September 2017 65DN will attempt a coast-to-coast cycle ride across the Pyrenees with a large group of injured ex-servicemen and women. This tough ride will involve covering 800km in seven days of hard cycling that will include 11,500m (38,000ft) of climbing.
