10,000 Steps Walking Challenge

A walking challenge for veterans, war widows, widowers, current and ex-Australian Defence Force members and their families.

Following on from the success of the Battlefields of the Western Front 10,000 steps walking challenge held in 2016, DVA will be running another national challenge as part of our Veterans’ Health Week activities in 2017.

The theme for this year’s challenge is The Kokoda Track, this virtual walk is timed to acknowledge the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Kokoda Track and will take participants on a four week virtual journey through some of the most significant historical and geographical elements of this iconic track. The challenge will commence on Saturday 21st October in line with the first week of Veterans’ Health Week and conclude on the 17 November 2017.
