MARK'S CHALLENGES

3 PEAKS CHALLENGE

MAY 2021

Switching the Bowra 1000 in 2020 to a virtual event left Mark Bowra with unfinished business with the Three Peaks.

 

He completed a training climb of Pen y Fan and the UK went into lockdown. Mark kept his chin up and smashed the 1000 miles of cycles, swims and YOMPs remotely. However, when the Roadmap out of COVID was announced, Mark recruited a team of veterans and people living with neurological injuries to join him in summitting the Three Peaks over three days as soon as the evolving regulations allow.

 

As well as challenging themselves Mark and his team aim to raise funds in support of Bowra Foundation’s work. The event is proudly supported by Lester Brunt Wealth Management.

ISLES OF SCILLY

JUNE/JULY 2021

In Summer 2020, Mark Bowra will bring together a members of the Armed Forces Community and people living with neurological disorders for a fantastic camping and watersports experience. Focussing on adaptive kayaking and other activities, the team will spend four days in the beautiful Isles of Scilly and the North Atlantic building skills, resilience, friendships – and, undoubtedly an impressive repertoire of Royal Marine slang!

 

This pilot project exemplifies the work Bowra Foundation was established to deliver with our two principal communities.
