Run for a Cause - 12 marathons in 2016

By Matthew David Bowe

Soldier On is an Australian charity that supports serviceman and women and their families ( We all benefit from the service of our military personnel (it is not they that set the Countries Defence policies but they put themselves in harms way to stand up and protect us when asked) but we do not know the hardship which many of them endure when they return. These include physical and psychological injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, PTSD, anxiety, depression and addiction. My father, David Bowe, was a returned serviceman from the Vietnam War who (most likely) suffered from PTSD before it was openly spoken about. He was a loving husband and father who took his own life 26years ago this year. I hope that by raising funds to help these people other young children and spouses can avoid what we went through.

Any donation, no matter how small will be welcomed.
