Yulara, Saturday 18 April, 2020

On Saturday 18 April 2020, can you be part of Walking Off The War Within in Yulara 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.

The course – begins at the Ulara Base Camp.

Tickets – FREE or $10, $25 or donation – This is an inclusive event that is available to everybody. Registration is available for $0, $10, $25 or a nominated amount of your choice. Money raised through ticket sales will cover event running costs, with proceeds donated to local service providers that work in the field of mental heath and suicide prevention.

MERCHANDISE – This year, you can pre-purchase a TSHIRT and CAP on the WOTWW website homepage.
