The Falklands Forty Challenge
Any way, any time, any place
Your challenge is to cover 40 miles during the month of May in support of our Falklands veterans.
As we mark 40 years since the end of the Falklands War, our veterans who were there are still in need of our support. In the years since the War ended many Falklands veterans have returned to civilian life, some with physical wounds from battle, and many in need of help to live fulfilled independent lives.
If you want to challenge yourself why not aim to raise £1 for each life lost.
What is the Falklands Forty Challenge?
The Falklands Forty Challenge is open to individuals or groups – FREE to take part, your challenge is to cover 40 miles anyway you like. Challenge yourself to walk, run, cycle or swim 40 miles in May and together we will honour the lives lost during the Falklands War and improve the lives of those who served. Open to all ages, all we ask is that you set up a fundraising page and share your challenge online.
You get to join our Facebook community and connect with other veterans, civilians and members of military families. You also get a FREE T-shirt once you receive your first donation.
Everyone is welcome to take part, become a member of our Falklands Forty family, and help us as we commemorate such an important time in the lives of our veterans.

255 British Forces lives were lost during the Falklands War
Vulnerable veterans from the Falklands War are looking to us to help them regain their independence, access safe homes and support them to get back on their feet. Every pound raised from The Falklands Forty Challenge will do just that.
We are continuously developing our package of support and ensuring that every veteran gets the help they so urgently need. RBLI’s ambitious expansion of facilities due to complete in 2024 will provide more homes and greater access to welfare support for the next 100 years, including community facilities, employability support and guidance on setting up life outside of service.
