Today, the RAF Benevolent Fund launches its 2021 Hardest Day Challenge, a fundraising initiative to commemorate the sacrifice and courage of those who risked their lives during the Battle of Britain.
This summer, the RAF Benevolent Fund is inviting the public to follow in the footsteps of The Few and take on their very own Hardest Day Challenge. Whether you opt for a sponsored walk or run, or brave a sponsored abseil or rock climb, your efforts will help the RAF Benevolent Fund continue to support the RAF Family for years to come.
Personnel at RAF Waddington will be attempting a Guinness World Record for the most people taking part in a circuit training session in a single location as part of the challenge, and members of public wishing to take on this challenge can join the event remotely via YouTube.
Aaron Tillyer, RAF Benevolent Fund Community Fundraiser, said: “The bravery of those who fought in the Battle of Britain continues to inspire us today, as we work to support all RAF veterans in need. We are calling on fundraisers to pay tribute to their sacrifice by completing their personal Hardest Day challenge. You could even become a Guinness World Record holder!”
