Hey Mildura, join this movement and help raise awareness of positive mental health. Let's walk as one to let people know they're not alone.

About this event

The Mildura Walking Off The War Within event is planned for Saturday 17 September, 2022 and we invite you to walk and talk for positive mental health. Here's a bit about the walk.

WALKING OFF THE WAR WITHIN IN MILDURA 2022

Let's march as one and shine a light on positive mental health and wellbeing

On Saturday 17 September 2022, you can be part of Walking Off The War Within in Mildura 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 PTSI; 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.

A family event - The day is designed for families to enjoy together with children's activities, education displays, emergency and defence force vehicle and equipment displays, music and more. 

The course - Nowingi Place, Hugh King Drive Mildura. The course is along the banks of the beautiful Murray River and is easily accessible for those with restricted movement or for young children.

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.
