'Gibraltar Rock Run' Wrap: Congratulations Henry!

What a weekend it's been!

Henry along with his brother Nik, and trainer Michael Blevins took on The Rock of Gibraltar Saturday and pretty much crushed it. Henry is raising money for The Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund and you can still help him reach his target. We had a chance to chat with Henry and have that exclusive coming up (UPDATE: Watch our interview now), but first here's a wrap of our coverage.

Forces TV had a chance to chat with Henry and his brother Nik in Gibraltar -- Read their article and see a few more pics.

YouGIbraltarTV also talked to Henry and his brother. Watch at their site or below.

Guess who else Henry, his brother, and Michael Blevins encountered?..

After the run, the participants attended a luncheon. And that meant more of Henry being gracious with his fans. They don't call him Superman for nothing. Sweetest man around.

We're not even half done, Next up, coverage from the Gala Cocktail Reception at the Governor of Gibraltar's residence. What a night.


  1. I AM Super Impressed with SuperCav-El <3 <3 <3...and His brother Lt. Col. Nik, his trainer Michael, the RMCTF and all the lovely fans and friends. This Rock Climb event/entire weekend celebrating the 350 years with the Marines was so well organized and orchestrated. I really enjoyed looking at all the beautiful, lovely pictures, video clips, etc. It's all very heart warming and just further illustrate what an incredibly generous, kind, gracious, classy beautiful man Henry is (not to mention what great physical shape he's in to come in with the lead pack after 8 hrs. of jet lag!--He did the run exactly right)...and the weekend says many good things about all the people who were involved with the whole thing as well.

    What a special Day/Weekend/Marines Celebration for Henry, Nik, Michael, family and friends of all involved. Thank you so much, Everyone, Henry fans & HCN for sharing all the beautiful pics, stories and special details of everything that will be treasured and remembered forever. Henry is so handsome and such a beautiful man in every way. This whole thing was really really really Something Special! (y) :) <3

  2. Outstanding coverage HCN of the entire event. Love the photo of Henry holding a baby - I wonder why ;)

    1. Could it be because it doesn't get any CUTER than THAT? <3 <3 <3
      I want A Baby with Henry when I see him with one...and with lil kids. So sweet.
      All the new pics from the weekend that keep getting added to this page are so nice too.
