Soldier On is a not-for-profit organisation that relies on the generosity of Australians to deliver critical support services to those who have supported us.
Forty-six per cent of transitioned ADF members are estimated to have had a mental health disorder in the previous 12 months, while almost 75% of transitioned personnel have had a mental health disorder in their lifetime.
These are shocking, unacceptable statistics.
If you are passionate about ensuring Australia’s Defence families can lead happy, healthy and meaningful civilian lives after leaving military service, you can help us raise much-needed donations by hosting a fundraising event.
Your fundraising efforts will directly support more than 10,000 current and former Defence personnel and their families in building social connections, rewarding careers and mental and physical resilience when a military career ends.
There are many ways you can fundraise, from hosting an event in your backyard to running a marathon.
Host an event
Host a get together with your friends, family or work colleagues and support those who have served our nation.
At Soldier On, mateship and social connection are at the heart of what we do. Hosting an event is a great way to embody the spirit of Soldier On, connect with those around you and provide much needed support for our veteran community.
Your event can be as formal or casual as you like – host a BBQ with your mates, a cheese and wine night with the girls or a morning tea at work. The choice is yours.
Set yourself a physical challenge and turn your sweat into dollars.
Whether it’s a local running challenge, competitive event, or setting your own physical challenge, you can test your ability while supporting those who have served our nation.
Walk, run, cycle, climb, or whatever else gets your heart racing.
