A group of five London cabbies known as Cabbies Do Kilimanjaro are to be supported by Be Military Fit with Bear Grylls on their year long mission to shed 25 stones and then climb Kilimanjaro to raise £20,000 for The Taxi Charity for Military Veterans…

Be Military Fit has generously given the cabbies a year’s free training and support to help them get fit and shed the pounds ahead of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in September 2019.

Bear Grylls said: “Huge respect to these incredibly tenacious cabbies! I love their drive for the mission and am proud to have Be Military Fit as a key motivator, supporting these guys in their training. It’s going to be a transformative journey for them and I can’t wait to see how they get on. Never give up!”

John Dillane, one of the cabbies, said: “The hour long training sessions with Be Military Fit are certainly very hard work but it is doing me so much good and my fitness is improving every week. I have already lost two stone and with the help of BMF I hope to have lost another four stone before we climb Mount Kilimanjaro in September 2019”
