Description

On Saturday 24th March 2018 at 9am Emergency Service Personnel, Defence Force Personnel & Members of the Public will be walking around Victoria Park in Ballarat to raise awareness of Depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

In December 2016 Firefighter Nathan Shanahan lost his battle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Sadly many of our service men and women have succumb to Depression and PTSD and taken their own lives.

The walk / challenge is replicate the walk Firefighter Nathan Shanahan completed in April 2015 from Mildura to Adelaide. Nathan walked over 400 kilometres with a 20 kilogram pack to raise awareness of PTSD and Depression.

We plan to in memory of Firefighter Nathan Shanahan and other Fallen Brother / Sister Service Men & Women to march around Victoria Park in Ballarat for 20 kilometres with a 20 kilogram pack which symbolises the weight of depression and the equipment our service personnel often carry.


We challenge YOU, YOUR TEAM, YOUR ORGANISATION to don a 20kg pack and march for 20kms around Victoria Park with us . . . MARCH AS ONE.

Walk for 1, 2, 3 or more kms with or without a pack. Or accept the CHALLENGE and do the 20 / 20 / MARCH AS ONE!

ALL WELCOME!!! Bring your family and your friends.
