S04E19 - Craig Watson (Walking4Warriors) pt1

It's been a long time coming and "good things come to those who wait".  In this episode we chat with Craig Watson, co-founder of Walking for Warriors based in Gladstone, Central Queensland.

We chat and advocate for collaboration amongst ex-service organisations (ESO's) and service providers.....Walking 4 Warriors and their collaborations with ESO's and community in the Central Queensland region were regarded amongst our top 5 setting a high benchmark whilst we were on our PTSD 12month National Awareness tour in 2021.

Craig shares his story of overcoming self sabotage and mental blocks deciding to take action one-step at a time, forming Walking 4 Warriors, a social and movement activity group with co-founder Justin and building up to competing in ultra-marathons. The pair felt so much connection and respect for the veteran and first responder community and their mantra's they hosted a 24 hour walking event to raise money for ESO's in the local area.
