VetRun180 - Injured Veterans Charity in Scottish Highlands

VetRun180 is a UK-based military veterans charity, formed by its founders (themselves Iraq & Afghan vets) out of a necessity. This young and hugely exciting charity takes physically and mentally injured (PTSD) veterans on challenging expeditions around the globe. It is on these unique journeys where the lucky teams are re-invoking their great sense of adventure and teamwork. VetRun180 is genuinely saving lives through the spirit of adventure - a concept that strikes a chord with Sandgrouse Travel & Expeditions.
