Alan and Robin’s 5 Marathons in 5 Days

A walk-a-thon in Aid of the RAF Museum RAF Centenary Programme.


On 8 May 2017 Robin and Alan will set off to walk 5 marathons in 5 Days.


We will be walking from the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford, in rural Shropshire, to the Royal Air Force Museum London, the site of the former RAF Hendon airbase.
Supporting us on our epic journey will be fellow trustees, staff and volunteers from the Museum including Maggie Appleton, Museum CEO; Sir Glenn Torpy, Chairman of the Board of Trustees; and Trustees Nick Sanders, Mike Schindler and Malcolm White.


The Royal Air Force is supporting the walk and we will be staying at a number of RAF stations en route before a 'crossing-the-finishing-line' event early in the evening of the 12 May.


We hope to raise £100,000 for the Royal Air Force Museum’s RAF Centenary Programme, a multi-million pound transformation of the Museum’s visitor experience, telling the RAF story on site and online.

The Museum has already raised over £20m but to succeed in our goal and to ensure the RAF is properly honoured for the historic and current role it undertakes for our nation both Robin and Alan need your support.

This represents quite a big challenge for us so we do hope that we can gain your financial support.

So please help us to achieve this target by donating now!


THANK YOU!
