The situation this year meant that we could not join the ABF Cateran YOMP in the UK or hold the Appalachian YOMP in the US. SO… we want to encourage people to get out with their friends and family and spend some time exercising in nature.
For that reason we are hosting a virtual YOMP (hike) on the weekend of June 20 & 21 which is free and open to everyone! You can register by yourself or, even better, join or start a team and encourage one another through your training and through the event.
On the event weekend we want you to hike a distance of Bronze (5km), Silver (10km), Gold (15km) or Platinum (20km) – whatever distance works for you, and in whatever location you can.
There is no registration fee and no commitment to fundraise but you’ll be sent a fundraising page on registration and every bit you can raise will help us with our mission. Click here to register!
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of the Allied Forces Foundation founder, Maj (Rtd) Stephen Cain MBE.
A graduate of the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, he was commissioned into the Royal Warwickshire Fusiliers. His distinguished military career earned him many honors, including being awarded a Member of the British Empire by Her Majesty the Queen for operational duties as Company Commander.
Stephen was devoted to enhancing the special relationship between Britain and America, and the steadfast alliance of Commonwealth nations in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. He furthered this commitment to British and American forces by establishing the Allied Forces Foundation, with the goal of providing experiences that unite and heal allied wounded, ill and injured. His leadership elevated the awareness of the organization and established the foundation on which the Allied Forces Foundation continues to grow.
We are forever grateful to Major Cain for this commitment to the Allied Forces Foundation. His inspiration has touched the lives of many.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this time.

ABOUT ALLIED FORCES FOUNDATION:
Allied Forces Foundation, a non-profit organization, was established to unite wounded, ill and injured Veterans and caregivers from US, UK, and allied nations forces in wellness and healing.
Through a series of outdoor, peer-led events that challenge the mind and body, Allied Forces Foundation provides opportunities that reinvigorate the spirit of comradeship and teamwork and instill a renewed sense of purpose with the Veteran.
The Allied Forces Foundation is predominantly an American/British charity with the goal of bringing US, UK, and allied nations Veterans, caregivers and families together for community activities. ‘Side by Side’ is our motto because it exemplifies our approach to recovery. Those who have fought together reunite, share experiences, and offer support to one another.
