Stomp to Support, Australia Day 2012


This Australia Day, troops from the Royal Australian Regiment (RAR) will remember the 32 Australian soldiers killed in Afghanistan by taking part in the first ever Stomp for Support, which aims to raise over $120,000 for Legacy Australia.

More than 1,200 men and women from 13 locations across the country will participate in the military march to generate funds for Legacy Australia.
Event organiser, Barry Deimos came up with idea following the death of three soldiers last October in Afghanistan.

“After losing yet another three brothers, bringing the total to 32, it was time to take action. Stomp for Support is a great way for the RAR and the community to come together to honour the Aussies lost in war and support their families left behind,” Barry said.
