Every year, the UK’s Armed Forces Para-Snowsport Team (AFPST) plays a powerful role in the recovery of injured and sick serving personnel and veterans. This sporting activity rebuilds their self-confidence and competitive spirit, through snowsport activities which give them the opportunity to build a new identity as a winter sports competitor.
Leonardo is now in its tenth year of supporting AFPST, working to make a lasting contributing to the freedom, rehabilitation and transformation of the wounded, injured or sick military personnel and veterans. In 2019, Leonardo is organising the Ride of Steel event to raise money for this worthwhile cause. The Ride of Steel event will see staff from Leonardo’s UK sites cycle from their site to converge in Sheffield, ahead of the UK Invictus Trials Opening Ceremony on Monday 22nd A team of 20 from Leonardo Helicopters – Yeovil, will cycle 232 miles to Sheffield over 4 days.
The final day will see all of the Ride
of Steel participants ride en masse to the Sheffield arena
ahead of the UK Invictus Trials Opening Ceremony.
