Alex is currently getting in gear for the ultimate TransEurope challenge that is kicking off this Summer on the 12th of June in London, where he will be crossing parts of Europe to finish in Rome, in an attempt to cover a staggering 1521 miles in 30days.

About Combat Stress
Combat Stress delivers dedicated treatment and support to ex-Service men and women with conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety disorders. The services are free of charge to the Veteran and since 2005 there has been a 72% increase in demand for the specialist services caring for Veterans' mental health. The charity was founded in May 1919, just after the First World War. When the charity formed, it was ahead of its time. The prevailing attitude to mental welfare was, by today's standards, primitive, even barbaric. Much has changed since then. With a current caseload of more than 4,300 Veterans, the charity has never been busier.
