We recognise that the current 'veteran narrative' doesn't positively reflect the pride many veterans feel from their work in uniform. Having both served ourselves, and subsequently discharged with injuries, we are connected with thousands of veterans in small pockets, living large everyday. They have identified service, injury or illness as an opportunity for rapid growth! Refusing to be defined by their setbacks and refusing to be encouraged to stay unwell to receive help (as the current systems suggests).
We want to make a change in the veteran narrative by coming together as 'Status Resfeber' which means; "The restless heart before a journey begins". Essentially we're putting ourselves to the test! Challenging our love of travel and our eagerness to emulate the positive veteran narrative we are trekking the length of Norway on an epic 3,353 km journey. Not to raise awareness, but to contribute to the change in how the modern veteran is discussed.
To support an established organisation continue their good work, we'll be doing our best to raise as much money as we can for Team Rubicon Australia (TRA). TRA unites the skills and experiences of Australian Defence Force veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams around the globe.
The purpose of Status Resfeber is to motivate and inspire ourselves as much as it is to contribute to the veteran community we are so proud of. "Just because you break, doesn't mean you're broken". This is our journey and we want you to be a part of it in anyway you want to contribute.
Like, comment, share, donate or even sending us a message, any help we get is much appreciated!
This trek is self funded and 100% of the donations raised will be going to Team Rubicon Australia (TRA). Sponsorship funds will be used to fly other veterans over to do parts of the trek with us.
Resfeber(n.): the restless race of the traveler’s heart before the journey begins, when anxiety and anticipation are tangled together; a travel fever that can manifest as an illness
