There is not man of us who does not at times need a helping hand stretched out to him
"Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys;
look on them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death."

Team Rubicon Australia (TRA) Team Rubicon's primary mission is providing disaster relief to those affected by natural disasters, be them domestic or international. By pairing the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders, medical professionals, and technology solutions, Team Rubicon aims to provide the greatest service and impact possible.
Through continued service, Team Rubicon seeks to provide our veterans with three things they lose after leaving the military: a purpose, gained through disaster relief; community, built by serving with others; and self-worth, from recognizing the impact one individual can make. Coupled with leadership development and other opportunities, Team Rubicon looks to help veterans transition from military to civilian life.
100% of funds raised will be going to Team Rubicon Australia (TRA). Team Rubicon Australia (TRA) unites the skills and experiences of Australian Defence Force veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams around the globe. Their mission: "To stand-up the pre-eminent disaster response organisation in the Pacific Rim and in doing so change the narrative around the Australian Veteran" - http://teamrubiconaus.org/donate/
Sponsorship money will be used to fly other Veterans over to Norway to do parts of the trek with us, it will pay for their flights, accommodation and food. We will film and document their stories that they share, learn what struggles they have dealt with and how they have overcome them.
