Not only has Benali's Big Run gone global, but it has now recived the backing of The First Battalion Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.
Currently based in BATUS, Canada on a training exercise, the First Battalion Royal Regiment of Fusiliers were the first to offer their support to Francis Benali.
Cpl Powell-Wright said "My wife has been involved with this challenge and I get daily updates on how he is getting on. I have told everyone here in BATUS about what he's doing and we now sit around the laptop and watch his progress on the live GPS tracker when we have some down time!
We are so very proud of him and we are sending him luck all the way from hot and dusty Canada!"
