Hockey for Heroes recently travelled to the Himalayas aiming to set a world record for the Highest game of Hockey played. This challenge was called “Operation Olympus” and the goal was to raise funds and awareness for Help for Heroes. It was a resounding success. At 5130m, Hockey for Heroes have achieved their goal and claimed the world record that they were striving towards.
This is not the first challenge of this kind to be undertaken by Hockey for Heroes. Recently, they have successfully completed fundraising events, ‘#OpEndure’ and ‘#OpStretcher’ which you can read all about on the Hockey for Heroes’ blog.
