This Veterans’ Health Week 16-24 October, RSL Australia is working with Veteran Sport Australia and Open Arms to encourage members to register in ‘Team Veteran’ at a local Parkrun. It’s a great way for veterans and their families to connect with the wider veteran community each week. Run, walk, or roll – everybody is welcome.

  1. Join parkrun – register at www.parkrun.com.au/register
  2. Then, join the Team Veteran run club by following this link https://www.parkrun.com.au/groups/29137/
