Why have you chosen to compete in the Devizes to Westminster Canoe and Kayak Race as part of the Cockleshell Endeavour team?: The race offers me a chance to do something challenging and a chance to give back to those that have served in the past. It is a chance for me to learn about PTSD and what can be done and is being done to support those that suffer from it.
