Get moving in Veterans’ Health Week

700,000+ Aussies have finished more than 10 million Parkruns, in 422 locations around the country.

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.

How to join:

  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/

Once you’ve registered, head over to this Open Arms page to claim your ‘Team Veteran’ t-shirt and proudly wear the RSL logo.

Whether you play, throw or run, walk, ride or roll, get moving this Veterans’ Health Week.

  • Organise a lawn bowls or golf day
  • Cycle to work each day for the week
  • Go for a kayak, swim, surf or ride
  • Try out a meditation, yoga or pilates class
  • Host an outdoor barbecue with backyard cricket
