The Mateship Run is an opportunity to come together during ANZAC commemorations and recognise the extraordinary contribution the Australian Defence Forces make – past and present – through participating in a healthy fun activity while raising funds as a community to assist with funding Soldier On Clinical Psychologist Brett Rufus, now housed at the CRSL Veterans Support Centre. Supported by Currumbin RSL, participants of all ages, sizes and fitness levels are encouraged to enter in a walk or run with friends, family and work colleagues as we celebrate the camaraderie and mateship of our heroes.
Currumbin RSL sees ANZAC Day as an opportunity to remember and revere all those who have served for our freedom from World War I through to current conflicts. The Club is proud to support the Mateship Run in aid of raising awareness and funds for Soldier On. Currumbin RSL has created a program of events around ANZAC day with a focus on veterans’ welfare, youth education and community inclusion. Each event hopes to engage the community and raise awareness and funds for Soldier On.
Soldier On is the leading independent support organisation for contemporary veterans in Australia. Walking beside our veterans on their road to recovery as the first national organisation to address the issues facing those affected by their service. We are a friendly face when they need it, assisting all contemporary veterans and their families.
Thanks to the support of the Australian public, we work to enhance recovery, inspire communities and empower Australia’s wounded, giving those who have served our country the dignity they deserve and the chance to do and be whatever they choose.
