To mark our 75th anniversary, we’re challenging you to take on your own 75 mile challenge to help support members of the fire services community in need. The distance is set, but how you get there is completely up to you. This is the first in a series of posts about your 75Miles, our 75Miler of the week.

Joined by our very own Blaze Bear, Kim Robson has started her #My75Miles journey on the Nordic Cross Country Ski Trail at Big White, Canada.

In her own words Kim explained why she’s taking on #My75Miles:

“My boyfriend John is a firefighter with Surrey Fire & Rescue Service, so I know all about the amazing work of this Charity.

“Two years ago, whilst skiing, I ruptured my ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) and required surgery and rehabilitation, and was fortunate enough to spend two weeks at Marine Court, The Fire Fighters Charity rehab centre in Littlehampton. Without this opportunity and the support I received I have no doubt my recovery from injury would have taken far longer.

“It’s my turn to thank them for everything they have done, and will continue to do for firefighters and their families in the years to come.”
