Ben is a Veteran, Athlete & Explorer. He served over 16 years in the British Army and was medically discharged due to complex trauma and a diagnosis of PTSD. Ben was shot numerous times and received blast/fragmentation injuries to both arms and his upper torso, without a doubt his body armour saved his life.

VetRun180 has helped Ben along his recovery journey by way of adventure therapy. Being in the outdoors is something he is enthusiastic about and when the opportunity came about to join an expedition out in Portugal Ben couldn’t wait to embrace this amazing opportunity.

Having been privileged with a trip as a beneficiary, Ben is now a Expedition Team Leader and understands the importance of mindset, development and resilience.
