YOUNG VETERAN’S SUPPORT WALK

This year we had 27 sponsors and 189 walkers register, a great result and thanks to you all for your support. However the weather was not being friendly. In short it looked grim with an on-going poor prediction.

Participants gather for Veterans’ Support Walk

Thanks to AEP the day was organised down to the last tee. Many thanks go to AEP staff and Reuben for his work again this year.

The start time this year was later than in previous years, managing to catch out a few regulars who arrived very early. By the time Peter Goers had completed his humorous off- beat comments about life in general the black clouds had gathered menacingly. Not to be deterred off they went at 1030 on a slightly amended route which resulted from part of the Torrens Lake track being affected by the recent rains.

The winners in all categories were awarded their prizes as the threat of rain became a reality but not before the raffle prizes were drawn and the BBQ was served.

Thanks to our sponsors

All up a good day which raised in excess of $15,000 all of which is directly aimed at reducing the impact of stress illness among our veterans and first responders.
