Support our battled-scarred soldiers in their recovery
Australia - such a beautiful and safe country. With the conflicts happening in the other parts of the world, every serviceman and woman have put their lives on the frontline and exposing themselves to unfavourable circumstances to reassure public safety. With the risks involve in their job, some may come home safe and sound. But how about those who were battle-scarred physically and psychologically? Are they getting enough support to overcome the obstacles caused by their injuries?

That's where Soldier On plays a big role in addressing the support gaps offered by the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and other government and not-for-profit organisations. Through donations from the public, the organisation provides programs to help the wounded succeed in their rehabilitation and beyond. This coming November 2nd, you can show your support by joining the Soldier On Ride 2 Remember ride around Lake Burley Griffin.
