It's hard to believe that on 7th October this year RIDE TO THE WALL will be celebrating its 10th anniversary. There have been some amazing memories over the year, which I'm sure many of you will recall on numerous occasions, I certainly do. Saying that, I imagine some of the memories from RTTW 2016 will no doubt have the words weather and wet in them. Considering the atrocious conditions it was extremely humbling to see such a massive turn out.
The family, that has become RTTW, is still growing at an amazing rate, with the logo and merchandise becoming more and more recognised at many events throughout the year. What a way to promote and get the message out of what we are all so proud to represent and be part of. It's a great feeling explaining to people what RTTW means, and their reaction when they understand the reasons why we do it.
The Directors, Trustees, Committee and volunteers, along with the staff at the National Memorial Arboretum have, over the years, dedicated an enormous amount of time to get RTTW where it is today, and at the same time never deviating from our Core Values, which is something very special. To do this, all as unpaid volunteers, is an even greater achievement.
On 24th June 2017 Ride To The Wall will, once again, present a cheque to the NMA for the upkeep of the amazing site. Since the founding of RTTW, YOU have contributed to raising in excess of £500,000, which in itself is a truly amazing achievement.
Once again on behalf of the Directors, Trustees, Committee and all the volunteers that make Ride To The Wall what it is today, I would like to thank you all for your continued support, dedication and commitment and look forward to seeing some of you at the cheque presentation at the NMA on 24th June, and then at Ride To The Wall on 7th October 2017.
