Cpt David Seath Family and Friends

For Extraordinary Dedication in Memory of Captain David Seath

In April 2016, Captain David Seath tragically passed away whilst taking part in the London Marathon for Help for Heroes. David collapsed 3 miles short of the finish and despite best medical efforts, he died in hospital aged only 31. Following David’s funeral, Captain James Walker-McClimens brought together a group of friends and colleagues to complete those last 3 miles with David’s family.

David’s story moved the British public and spontaneous donations began pouring in though their fundraising pages. In total the pages raised more than £200,000. Since May, David’s family have established the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund. Led by his brother Gary, they have undertaken tireless personal fundraising whilst also inspiring others to fundraise for Help for Heroes, moving the total raised to almost £250,000. A Captain in 29 Commando Regiment, Royal Artillery, David was driven to support our wounded, injured and sick. Thanks to the fundraising he started, and the family now continues, more than 150 lives have already been transformed, through individual grants we have made in David’s name.
