Introducing Team Status Code 14
Simon, Steve and Brad are a group of friends who have similar goals, ethos and a love of adventure who have come together to complete a number of significant physical challenges to raise funds and awareness of two charities which are close to their hearts. They will be completing a channel swim, rowing the Atlantic, an ultra-marathon and a Hike and Fly from Mont Blanc.
There are many calm and courageous police officers, paramedics, fire officers and staff who dedicate their lives to keeping others safe. They are routinely exposed to distressing and traumatic incidents, alongside demanding workload pressures. Stress and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) is now well recognised within the military community, but the Police, Ambulance and Fire Services are increasingly falling further behind. Who is there to help them? Team Status Code 14 want to enable those to get the help they need.
And their second charity is the Chestnut Appeal. When it comes to men’s cancer, most men don’t know what’s normal and what’s abnormal – and are afraid to ask. This has got to change. Prostate, penile and testicular cancer can be checked and successfully treated – but checking needs to become a habit and talking about it and educating men is paramount. Team Status Code 14 want to raise awareness of men’s cancer and that a regular check could potentially save a life.
