The Ride to Survive Campaign
Veterans Stand Together is a not-for-profit organisation founded in early 2018. Providing the provision of long-term employment opportunities and support to mental health and awareness for military and first responders services personnel.
On October 2nd 2018, VST took part in the Lighting Bolt 2 charity campaign in support of Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and mental health. VST has partnered up with Stand Tall 4 PTS as a part of their Ride to Survive Campaign to bring awareness and support to veterans that fight a battle against Mental Health, Post-Traumatic Stress and Unemployment After Leaving the Service.
15 Veteran cyclists are taking part in the Ride to Survive campaign to create awareness and to offer support to Veteran employment opportunities and mental health issues. The 20-day ride began in Brisbane and ending in Sydney for the opening of the Invictus Games by Prince Harry.
The campaign will take place and be seen in three states Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. During this campaign, VST will be stopping in a number of locations bringing awareness of PTS & Mental Health to the communities, and for the last leg of the journey, they have invited Prince Harry to join before opening the games.
