About Rudolph Fun Run
Join us for an unforgettable and festive event, the RBLI Rudolph Fun Run! Come along and celebrate the spirit of the season while supporting a great cause. This exciting event aims to raise funds for the Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI), an organization dedicated to improving the lives of veterans and their families.
Why run for RBLI
Anil joined the Army in 2006 as a rifleman with the 2nd Royal Gurkha Regiment. Just 20 days before he was due to finish his tour in Afghanistan, aged just 24, he stepped on an IED. Anil suffered multiple injuries, resulting in the amputation of his leg. After an intense rehabilitation process, Anil secured work in RBLI’s social enterprise, Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company, making rail signs for companies across the UK and abroad. “Working every day at RBLI is the best thing that could have happened to me.”
Following RBLI’s support, Anil had the confidence to take on his first major sporting challenge in the form of The Invictus Games, winning gold in the sitting volleyball Team in 2014 and silver in 2016. However, arguably, his biggest challenge to date is when he climbed to Mount Everest Base Camp in November 2017. After battling altitude sickness to successful reach his target, he returned to the Kent charity a hero after raising more than £11,000 for his fellow veterans and people with disabilities.
