After 5 years of touring and fundraising with Tour de Cure, I've decided to take a step back to the start of my career (I joined the Navy having just turned 16) to help raise much needed funds for our veterans and their families
On April 3, myself and some like minded friends will be riding some 400+km over 4 days, from Newcastle to South West Rocks to help raise much needed funds for Soldier On.
Us veterans wrote a blank cheque to the country we love and left home to serve in many ways, on the sea, on the land and in the air. Some were in conflict, others were providing key support roles, we are all one family!
Not enough is done to support our veterans, I'm hopeful that by raising awareness and funds that the future may be brighter.
A recent media story told us how there was limited integration of sports men and women back into the community, the same has been happening to veterans since wars began, we were lucky to get a piss-up and were sent on our way....
Lets support the real heroes!!
I'd love if you could make a donation to Soldier On today so our veterans and their families can receive vital support services to enable them to thrive.
