PRINCE HARRY AND MS. MEGHAN MARKLE TO ATTEND
ENDEAVOUR FUND AWARDS CEREMONY

London

Thursday 1st February, 2018

Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle will attend the annual Endeavour Fund Awards at
Goldsmiths’ Hall on Thursday 1st February. His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle will celebrate the achievements of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women who have taken part in remarkable sporting and adventure challenges over the last year.

The Royal Foundation’s Endeavour Fund supports the ambitions of these men and women
to use challenges to help with their physical, psychological and social recovery and
rehabilitation.

Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will first attend a pre-ceremony reception where they will
meet the inspiring nominees, as well as endeavour participants and key supporters of the
Endeavour Fund. They will then attend the awards ceremony, where three prizes will be
awarded:

  • The Recognising Achievement Award – awarded to the individual who has best
    utilised their endeavour to promote and catalyse their recovery
  • The Celebrating Excellence Award – awarded to the individual who has endeavoured
    to achieve excellence in their chosen sport or adventure challenge
  • The Henry Worsley Award – awarded to the individual who has best inspired others
    through the demonstration of determination in the face of adversity, whilst
    endeavouring to support others with their recovery through sport or adventure
    challenge.

The Henry Worsley Award is named after the late Henry Worsley, who tragically lost his life
in January 2016 whilst attempting to cross the Antarctic landmass, solo and unsupported.
Henry, a career soldier and an experienced polar adventurer, undertook this incredible
expedition in order to raise money for the Endeavour Fund.

The Endeavour Fund is a project led by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge and Prince Harry. The fund plays an important role in ensuring that more servicemen and women have the opportunity to rediscover their self-belief and fighting
spirit through physical challenges. It aims to target those that are hard to reach and to
support activities that contribute to the participants’ recovery – either through mentorship,
qualifications or work opportunities.

Since its launch in 2012, the Endeavour Fund has supported 66 different projects that have
directly assisted over 2,265 WIS. Through their own fundraising, these endeavours have
collectively raised over £2.5million for other forces charities across the sector.
