Iain & Comeron challenge each other for limbless veterans charity

Ballymoney father-son duo Iain and Cameron McAfee are pushing their bodies to the limit for injured and limbless military veterans in Northern Ireland.

Blesma ‘The Limbless Veterans’ was founded after World War I and 2022 marks the 90th anniversary of its establishment. Since then, the charity has supported over 62,000 veterans with lifelong support.

Recognize the 90e birthday, Iain and Cameron are each taking 900,000 steps – an average of 5 miles a day – and doing 9,000 push-ups (100 a day) in a challenge that started May 1 and will run through July 30.

As part of the challenge recently, Iain and Cameron walked an impressive 20 miles from Ballymoney to Coleraine and back, logging over 40,000 steps in just over 5 hours.

Iaine said: “We wanted to undertake something that would challenge us both physically and mentally. Every day we have to get out and walk and find time for push-ups. Sometimes you can feel sluggish and tired, but compared to the daily experiences of veterans and their families, that’s nothing.

Iain and Cameron have already been accompanied by Maurice Bradley MLA and Cllr Darryl Wilson, and the good news is that more will join them in the coming weeks when the challenge ends. They will also connect with several injured veterans that the fundraiser will support.
