Adaptive Grand Slam team leader, Martin Hewitt, is the founder of the AGS, a team of disabled adventurers, on a mission to be the first disabled team in history to complete the notorious Grand Slam, which entails summiting the highest peak on each of the 7 continents and walking unsupported to the geographic North and South Poles.
Martin served eight years as a commissioned officer with the Parachute Regiment. He worked on operations and training exercises in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and North America. Martin was injured whilst leading his men in combat in Afghanistan. The injuries paralysed his right arm and ended his military career.
