RUN WITH WILL
“WHERE THERE’S A WILL THERE’S A WAY.”
ULTRA MARATHON PER DAY, EVERY DAY, FROM MARGARET RIVER, WA TO BYRON BAY, NSW.
William “Will” Burnett is about to embark on Australia’s most inspirational journey to raise awareness and funds for veteran suicide prevention and post-traumatic stress solutions. He will be running an ultra marathon per day (55kms), every day, from Margaret River, WA to Byron Bay, NSW in a world record attempt.
On the 7th of September you can run your own self-paced challenge that we have provided you below anywhere you wish (e.g. maybe you want to do it on a treadmill or in nature). All you have to do is run your chosen distance non-stop before 17 November to save and change veterans lives. Please scroll down to learn more.
Will served for 10yrs in the Royal Australian Airforce eventually discharging as a Physical Training Instructor (PTI).
On Will’s return from the Middle East his mental health declined and he struggled through the clinical health system not getting any results, eventually becoming suicidal.
Will made it his purpose to heal and this was eventually achieved through a holistic approach of breath-work (in which he is now a world renowned practitioner) and personal development (he completed and excelled on the Survive to Thrive Nation Program).
Will connected with Survive to Thrive Nation (STTN) and was inspired by the thousands of veterans who not only recovered through their evidence based personal development program, but many are becoming coaches and mentors across Australia for other veterans. It also should be noted, in 9 years of operation they have had zero suicides for anyone who has completed their program.
“More than 1200 veterans have taken their lives since our campaign in the Middle-East, compared to 41 in combat.. Can anyone see a problem here with the system? 46.8% of veterans will experience a mental health concern within the first 12 months of discharge. Yet, through personal development and breath-work I was able to find recovery. The STTN program have proven to save and change lives at an unprecedented level. While the Australian Defence Force continues to train veterans for war, but does not train us to come home, we need to step up and change and save lives now, and I need your help Australia!”
