Description

WALKING OFF THE WAR WITHIN 2019 - is now happening in Warnambool...

On Sunday 24 March 2019 you can be part of Walking Off The War Within in Warrnambool to 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.

A family event

The day is designed for families to enjoy together, people of all abilities and ages are encouraged to walk. A free BBQ supplied by RSL Active and RSL Warrnambool Sub - Branch.

The course

Meet at the Kiwanis BBQ at Lake Pertobe, Pertobe Road to take on the 5km circuit. The circuit allows walkers the chance to walk and talk as one. There is no pressure to complete the 20km but walkers are encouraged to challenge themselves and shine a light on mental health.
