Event description

Description

On Saturday 28th April 2018 Emergency Service Personnel, Defence Force Personnel & Members of the Public will be walking at:

  • East Point Reserve Darwin,
  • Uluru Base Walk Yulara and
  • Barrett Drive, Alice Springs (Opposite Lasseters Casino)

to raise awareness of Depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Bullying.

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 for 20 kilometres with a 20 kilogram pack which symbolises the weight of depression and the equipment our service personnel often carry.

We welcome everyone to share the burden and march as one. Choose to walk, 5, 10, 15kms with or without a pack, OR accept the Challenge of 20 kilometers with a 20 kilogram pack.

Walkers completing 15km and 20km are invited to start at 7am with those completing 10km and 5km to commence at 8am.

Shirts ($15 each) and hats ($5 each) can be purchased with registration and collected the week of the event or on the day.

Shirts are available in Colours: Black, Dark Green, Light Grey and Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL

Hats are black with white printing and are one size

All funds raised through registration and shirt/hat sales will cover event costs will be shared between Soldier On, Headspace NT, Lifeline and Blackdog Institute to continue the ever important work in combatting Depression, PTSD and Bullying.
