EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
Captain Nigel Marsh is a British Army officer serving in the Royal Engineers. He is currently assigned to HQ 29 Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) & Search Group, the organisation responsible for the British Army EOD capability on overseas operations and homeland security tasks. Since enlisting in the army in 1984 Captain Marsh has served throughout the world, operating mainly in the counter-IED role, in some 'interesting' and challenging places such as Africa, The Falkland Islands, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen and Afghanistan.
Having completed the London Marathon earlier in the year Captain Marsh is delighted to be particpating in the ING New York City Marathon as part of such an incredible team aiming to raise funds for the AFF to benefit our wounded soldiers and their families. In appreciation of the fantastic work carried out by the AFF and the 'Carry A Comrade' initiative, Nigel will also be undertaking the Marine Corps Marathon, Washington DC, the week prior to the NYC Marathon. In this event he will be leading a UK military team supporting a fellow Royal Engineers officer who aims to complete the whole 26 miles wearing a protective EOD suit in a world record time!!
Please show your support for these endeavours and donate in recognition of those individuals who have voluntarily placed themselves in harm's way and who have sacrificed so much. Ubique.

The Allied Forces Foundation, Inc. (AFF) is designed to recognise and further the Steadfast Alliance of the United States and the United Kingdom, which nations' long history of cooperation and comradeship has most recently been tested in conflicts subsequent to the World Trade Center attacks of 9/11.
The mission of the AFF is to raise funds for allied comrades wounded in these conflicts and to raise awareness of the ongoing challenges faced by injured soldiers and their families.
The slogan 'Carry A Comrade' is a marketing and fund raising brand of the AFF. We invite you to support 'Team Carry a Comrade' in the 2012 NYC Marathon and all those who enter in the name of the Allied Forces Foundation, Inc. Thank you for recognising those who have given so much!
