Description

WALKING OFF THE WAR WITHIN 2019 - March as one...

On Saturday 23 March 2019 be part of Walking Off The War Within in Canberra 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 PTSD; sadly, Nathan lost his battle in December 2016. Walking Off The War Within is one way Nathan’s legacy continues.

The Challenge – walk 5, 10, 15kms with or without a pack...

...Or complete the Ultimate Challenge - 20km with 20kg. We challenge you - your mates, family, colleagues and friends - to throw on your walking boots, grab your pack and march as one; everyone welcome.
