Vested for a Cause 2021
Veteran suicide is becoming more and more prevalent over the past years and now is our chance to show our support in stopping it!
The rate of suicide of ADF ex-service men from 2002-2018 was 21% higher than the national male average, and 127% higher for ex-serving females.
Our plan for our team is to wear a 10kg weight vest for a month (continuously) to raise awareness for PTSD for returning servicemen and women. Only removing the vest to sleep and shower. The Vest will be shared amongst our team players to support the load each of us must carry.
Idea behind the vest it to simulate the load returned service personnel still carry with them once returning home. The weight of PTSD.
With your help we hope to raise money for support in donations to Soldier ON, every bit counts. Fundraising funds will be shown on each teams page and also go towards the grand total Vested for a Cause fundraiser page target of $10,000.
Show you support for us and help us give back to those who have signed on the dotted line for the sacrifice they have given to protect us, our country and our beliefs.
