S04E20 - Craig Watson (Walking4Warriors) pt23

In the concluding episode to Andy's chat with Craig Watson from Walking4Warriors (Gladstone QLD) the focus shifts to the core values and ethos of the organisation and their plan to expand thier offerings and fundraising to be inclusive of the first responder community in the CQ area.

Of all the attributes, "Resilience" is what comes to the forefront of Craigs mind and how a regular core activity such as their weekly walks are bringing veterans, first responders, their immediate support and wider community together.

He recalls the buzz and sense of achievement and satisfaction at the transformative effect of their offerings i.e from the first walk, building up to running short distances and even competing in ultra-marathons.
