Soldier On supports Australian service men and women who have been wounded, physically or psychologically in contemporary conflicts. This includes conflicts after 1990, as well as serving members who were wounded in training or other exercises and individuals working for other Government agencies (DFAT, AFP, Customs). We are not part of the RSL, Legacy, the Department of Veterans Affairs or Police Legacy, but are excited to work with these organisations to support Australia’s young service men and women.
First, this is not about times or beating records (though if that’s your thing, go for it!). This is about community, investing in new connections and getting those endorphins going.
It’s a event that doesn’t care what your job was, is, or is going to be. It’s about being open to new people and conversations. It’s about giving running a go, taking in the sights of a beautiful city and grabbing a takeaway coffee at the end.
On your first run, all it costs is $3, and you get a wristband! To finish, we’ll meet at Bookplate Cafe, just behind the National Library for coffee from 7.45am til 9am and you get 10% discount off your coffee.
You don’t need to be a serving member to join in, and its for people of all fitness levels.
