My Activity Tracking
My target 96 kms
I'm fundraising to support mental health and our heroes
This March, I am walking 96km to support Soldier On's lifesaving mental health services and to honour our brave transitioned Australian Defence Members.
Why 96kms? Because that's the length of the Kokoda Track to symbolise the courage and sacrifice of our service members.
Please March On with me and support my challenge, and together we can save lives.
$25 can fund a peer support session to 3 veterans, giving a safe and supportive space and an important first step in gaining the help they need.
Thanks so much for your support and wish me luck!

Why do this? (a personal perspective)Tuesday 26th Jan
In short, I’m doing this for similar reasons for participating in or seeking out
the ANZAC Day Dawn Service every year for the past 46 years, whether that be
here in Australia or overseas...wherever I might be on 25th
I attend the Dawn Service because I figure it’s the least we should be doing to commemorate and remember the senseless loss and irreparable damage to life and to the wider society over all past wars, none of which in my view have been fought for a truly good reason.
While each of us has our life struggles (while valid) they may likely be inconsequential compared to our returning service people who have to manage life and death situations throughout their tour/s and then come home and deal with those anxieties and intensity of feelings and trauma…perhaps for the rest of their lives.
Sadly, some cannot see a way out.
This is why the ‘Soldier On’ cause is so important and why I’m asking please if you can support in whatever small way you can.
If we can perhaps get to $20K we will be able to together help a lot of people.Share
