Wagga Wagga, Saturday 2 May, 2020

On Saturday 2 May 2020 Wagga Wagga will be part of the Walking Off The War Within movement to 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.

The day is designed for families to enjoy together. We’re planning to have things for kids to enjoy as well as BBQ. The course is at Apex Park, a great space on the shores of beautiful Lake Albert. People of all ages can walk 1, 2, 3, or more kms and have their supporters around to watch them walk.

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.
