Built March on to Save Lives
This month, a group of Built staff will be taking on the March On Challenge to help support and raise funds for Soldier On’s life-changing mental health services and programs.
Set with a challenge of completing 96km by March 31 – the equivalent of the Kokoda Track – the team have set themselves an even more ambitious target of 155km, that’s 5km per day!
“Supporting veterans and their families is something Built is very proud of. With both personal and community connections to serving and ex-serving Defence personnel, it’s great to see so many colleagues sign up and take on this challenge,” said Josh Whittaker, General Manager, NSW Fitout and Refurbishment.
Built is committed to strengthening the communities where we do business, where we have clients, and where our valued employees work and live.
Founded in 2012, Soldier On is a not-for-profit veteran support organisation established to support those returned personnel that had been physically or psychologically impacted by their service.
Their services aim to help individuals build resilience and create, and expand meaningful connections with family, community and employers through health and wellbeing services, employment programs, learning opportunities, and participation activities.
“Built invests in a range of charitable and volunteering projects across the country that align with our key causes and have a positive impact on society and local communities,” said Program Manager, Pippa Harrison.
“We all recognise the importance of enhancing the health and wellbeing of our people. March On is a great opportunity to not only promote physical health but also raise funds for an organisation that supports the mental and physical health and wellbeing of veterans and their families,” she said.
