BE INSPIRED BY DERRICK MCMANUS

Speaker, facilitator, author and survivor

The Walking Off The War Within committee and family invite you to attend a charity luncheon to shine a spot light on mental health, depression, post traumatic stress disorder and suicide.

Be inspired by Derrick as he shares his story of determination, human durability and hope. Derrick draws on his inspirational history as a former sniper, diver and counter-terrorist operative with the elite SA Police Special Tasks and Rescue (STAR) Group. During a high-risk arrest, he was shot 14 times with a high-powered rifle in less than 5 seconds. He was lying on the ground for 3 hours before he could be rescued. The first doctor to reach him thought he was already dead and later said “I actually don’t know how he survived, he’s an incredible human being.”

Derrick amazed everyone including the doctors by surviving and then again by thriving after the shooting.

This luncheon is a fundraising event for Walking Off The War Within sponsored by the Ballarat North Sports Club.
