The Legacy Events
What is Legacy about?
RRT is supporting two events for Legacy in the near future. The Canungra Combat Challenge on the 21st of July and the Legacy Badge Day on the 9th of September 2018.
Legacy is a charity providing services to Australian families suffering after the injury or death of a spouse or parent, during or after their Defence Force service. We currently care for around 65,000 widow(er)s and 1,800 children and disabled dependants throughout Australia.
How it works
The Canungra Combat Challenge event:
The event is to be held on the Kokoda Army Barracks, Canungra, on Saturday 21st July 2018. It is an endurance challenge, divided into three individual challenges – including the famous obstacle course of Canungra.
It is the first event of its kind to take place on an active military base; and Legacy Brisbane has been fortunate enough to receive immense support from the officers of Kokoda Barracks to coordinate this event on their base.
It is a fundraising event; with teams all fundraising to help support the 7,000+ widows, families and children of our fallen heroes.
RRT are anticipating to serve 300+ Classic Beef Burgers along with chilled bottled water and soft drinks. In addition, 100% of the RRT takings (including costs) will be donated to Legacy Brisbane in support of the widows and children who have lost a spouse or parent as a result of their Defence Force service.
