The people behind We Remember Them are two old friends: Deane Hitchens-Orr (a former Royal Marines officer) and Simon Wright. They both live in Sheffield and are currently grinding up and down the local hills on a bike training for their own We Remember Them Everesting bike challenge in June 2018.

The campaign is run entirely by volunteers and every penny raised by all the sponsored challenges goes directly to the two supported charities via Virgin Money Giving. We Remember Them does not and cannot accept donations. If you feel inspired to make a donation just go to our Challengers web page and sponsor one of the challengers!

The idea for We Remember Them comes from the Remembrance Day poem They shall grow not old by Laurence Binyon:

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
