Brisbane, Saturday 4 April, 2020
On Saturday 4 April 2020, can you be part of Walking Off The War Within in Brisbane and help fight depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Together we can shake off the stigma associated with mental health. Join Emergency Service Personnel, Defence Force Personnel and members of public to walk in memory of Nathan Shanahan, a returned solider and firefighter, and other fallen Service Men and Women who have taken their own lives after battling mental health issues. Nathan was a fierce advocate for mental health and PTSD; sadly, Nathan lost his battle in December 2016. Walking Off The War Within is one way Nathan’s legacy continues.
The Challenge – complete the ultimate 20km with 20kg or… …walk any distance you can – with or without a pack.
Bring the whole family – The day is designed for families to enjoy together with children’s activities, education displays, emergency and defense force vehicle and equipment displays, music and more.
The course – Walk Pelican Park at Clontarf, QLD. The park is overlooking Bramble Bay and is lovely location for this event. Walkers will have the chance to walk and talk as one and supporters can watch their loved ones achieve their goal.
Register for Free, $10, $25 or donation – This is an inclusive event that is available to everybody. Register for $0, $10, $25 or a donation of your choice. Money raised through ticket sales supports event costs with proceeds donated to local charities that work in the field of men’s mental heath and suicide prevention.
