Race2Recovery are a team of volunteers, racing to inspire those who are injured, disabled or facing adversity, by being the first team of predominantly injured servicemen to complete the formidable Dakar Rally in South America, January 2013. They are doing this to raise money for Tedworth House, which is one of four Recovery Centres run by Help for Heroes and forms part of the Defence Recovery Capability.
All the charitable money that is donated to them by the public or companies, goes to support Tedworth House, completely separate from the team's racing activity which is paid for by personal contribution and corporate sponsorship alone.
Race2Recovery’s goal is competing in and completing the hardest motor sport race in the world – The Dakar Rally Raid. The team have now started the race in South America after 18 months of training and racing in the UK, Europe and North Africa. The team is run by wounded soldiers who recognise that they are the lucky ones and want to make a significant difference in what they can achieve after their injuries and what they can do to help others.
