OLIVER KAY's Fundraising Page

I am Olly Kay. I am 29 years old. I commissioned out of The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in April 2006 and joined 1st Battalion, The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment (Armoured Tigers). The PWRR is the finest Infantry regiment in the British Army and I was honoured and proud to serve alongside such professional soldiers.  When I moved out to Paderborn in Germany, I was a Platoon Commander for 2 years and then became Second in Command (XO) of A Company whilst out on Operation TELIC 13 in Basra, Iraq.  I returned from Iraq in April 2009.  I resigned my commission and left The British Army on August 1, 2009. 

I moved to the USA on 4th August 2009. I spent a year at California State University Northridge before transferring to University Of California Los Angeles where I am studying Arabic. I am a Cadet in the UCLA Bruin Battalion ROTC (Reserve Officers Training Corps). I completed BCT (Basic Combat Training) in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri this summer and am currently enlisted in the US ARMY Reserves with 3rd Platoon, 350th Engineer Company (MAC) based in Bell, California.

Once I graduate in 2013 I am aiming to rejoin Active Duty Infantry.

I ran the LA Marathon in 2010 in 4hrs 2mins and raised over $6,500 for US Veterans. In March 2011 I am aiming to raise the remainder to reach $10,000.

I am very grateful for your support. I feel it is important to raise money for Veterans in need. I feel that running the LA Marathon 2011 is a small way I can give back to those who have served as I am currently serving.

Please pass this website around so with your generosity and support you can help me reach my target.

I would like to thank those at US Vets for their fantastic support during the last LA Marathon, my family & friends back in the UK & in the US for their continued support.

 

Many Thanks

Olly
