Back On Track

How did the Back On Track Charity come about?

 

The preservation of health, rehabilitation, and resettlement into the society of former members of the armed forces who have been wounded, physically or psychologically, in particular, but not exclusively by providing or assisting in the provision of medical treatment (including reconstructive surgery) emotional and psychological support and facilities or other support.

The story behind Back On Track Back on Track is the brainchild of Dr. Aamer Khan and his wife, Lesley Reynolds, who founded The Harley Street Skin Clinic www.harleystreetskinclinic.com. For some time now, they have been quietly working with injured servicemen and women, particularly in the field of skin injuries, to help them regain the confidence to face the world again, and when they discovered that several of the servicemen were passionate about karting they devised an event which would both be a lot of fun plus could help to raise funds to help them continue racing.

Thus Back on Track was born in 2014 and it is fair to say that it was an immediate success. The Harley Street Skin Clinic has an impressive celebrity clientele who were magnimous in their response to the call to take on the daredevil racing soldiers…for a while, it was touch and go, but in the end, the soldiers triumphed. And the challenge goes on…each year the soldiers, celebrities, and general public vie for the top position and the top prize. 2016 was a game-changer because Back on Track applied to the Charity Commission for official status… and in October 2016 this was granted which means that Back on Track can now raise more money to help more servicemen and women heal their skin injuries and rebuild their confidence.
