Sam's Centenary Challenge for The Royal Marines Charity
To mark 100 years since the end of the First World War, former Royal Marine Sam Fowler will be completing the ‘Centenary Challenge’, to help to raise funds for the Royal British Legion and The Royal Marines Charity.
Sam will be taking on this epic challenge after leaving the Royal Marines in August to follow his dream of opening a gym. His inspiration for the challenge is largely drawn from the time he spent in the Royal Marines, and the two brothers still serving in the Corps.
This Friday at 6am, Sam will start his first set of:
10 rounds of...
10 pull ups
10 squats @100kg
10 press ups
10 deadlifts @100kg
“This challenge that I have set myself I have no doubt is going to be one of the most gruelling physical challenges I’ve ever attempted.”
Sam’s Centenary Challenge is part of JustGiving’s #100YearsOn fundraising campaign to support military charities, recognising the incredible sacrifices people made during the First World War.
“I think anyone who has served in the military has a closer connection with Remembrance Day and for me it’s a time to reflect on how lucky we really are in modern society. People often forget about the sacrifices that are made on a daily basis, not only by those who are serving, but those who have served and also their families who have supported them throughout their careers. An absolute thankless task and after 100 years our Nation still stands free and proud and I genuinely feel that should be commemorated.”
Sam’s Centenary Challenge will take place at the Royals Gym in South Lincolnshire, commencing at 06:00 hours on the morning of 9th November 2018, with supporters, encouraged to drop in to cheer him on.
