We are honoured to have the Duke of Sussex as the official Expedition Patron of The Walk of Oman.
He took part in our first-ever expedition to the North Pole in 2011, skied to the South Pole with the team in 2013 and continued as patron for our expeditions: Everest, the Walk of Britain and the Walk of America.
“I am proud once again to support the veterans whose courage, determination and resilience is a credit to all of us who have served. To the men and women selected for this team, good luck! I know people all over the world will be cheering you on.”
THE DUKE OF SUSSEX
“Without the generous support of our Partners, the Walk of Oman wouldn’t be achievable. It has been pivotal to the progression of the expedition and ensures all fundraising goes to the cause, not costs. We look forward to building an exciting and enduring legacy with each of them.”
Fergus Williams, CEO, Walking With The Wounded.
“We know very well the challenges presented by the pandemic and we have great admiration for the team’s ongoing endeavours to raise awareness with this mission. It highlights the determination and tenacity of the whole Walking With The Wounded team, and we are proud to play a small part in supporting the UK expedition.”
“Well, what a year we have all had. We have been seriously impressed with the resilience of the guys from WWTW who have managed to pull off an epic walk despite having to swap the Oman desert for the green hills of the UK. This challenge will still test our Vet’s limits of endurance.
And we will be backing them all the way, with the ideal technical kit for our unpredictable UK weather. So swapping mossies for midges and sandy wind to plain old cold British wind, we, at Craghoppers, are confident that our clothing will stand up to whatever lies ahead for the team.”
“We’re very happy to be providing satellite communications coverage to the formidable expedition team and their supporters in Oman, which will enable them to remain connected and stay safe, even at the most remote points of their journey.
As a company that works closely with governments and peacekeeping forces around the world, we are keen to show our thanks and respect for those who put themselves on the frontline to protect others. Walking With The Wounded’s Walk of Oman is a fantastic initiative to highlight the resilience and strength of the men and women who have been wounded at war.”
‘‘The Invictus Games Foundation is proud to lend its support to Walking With The Wounded’s Walk of Oman. This walk not only shares a Patron with the Foundation, it shares its goals in supporting those injured in service.
We look forward to helping establish further international endeavours in the future.”
“We are immensely proud and excited to be partnering with Walking With The Wounded, not only for their expedition but the fundraising and support they generate for those injured in service.
The Walk of Oman looks set to provide another fantastic platform that will demonstrate the courage and capabilities of service and ex-service personnel, from which we can all take great inspiration. We wish everyone associated with the expedition the very best with their preparations and of course the walk itself.”
“Having supported Walking With The Wounded for many years, Shard Capital is proud to sponsor the Walk of Oman trek and in doing so, solidify its relationship with this fantastic charity.
Our team includes a number of people who previously served in the military and together, we salute the bravery of those injured in service who will be participating. We look forward to celebrating their success on completion of this extreme trek.”
“Outward Bound Oman is proud to partner with Walking With The Wounded’s Walk of Oman. As with every worthwhile venture, the benefits of this journey extend beyond those directly involved.
The walk presents a great opportunity to raise awareness in Oman of mental wellbeing and will give an immeasurable boost to the work being done with Omani youth by the not for profit organization Outward Bound Oman.”
“Marsh is delighted to support this fantastic event. We strive to support our armed forces community and this is a great way to do so. We are proud to have a Marsh colleague completing the expedition, and will be lending our support throughout this particularly arduous journey.”
