2nd Annual 42 Hour Challenge – Closing Ceremony

November 13, 2017

By 42 for 42

Welcome & well done – 42 hours done.

We’ve come together over the last 3 days and let’s face it some of us the last 12 months, to do something really special, that will unite the families of the fallen of our Afghanistan soldiers, combat veterans and their families, – by building a memorial garden right here that will honour those we’ve lost overseas and here back home after the war.

It will be a sanctuary we can all reflect and enjoy. I have a long list of thank you, firstly our brothers, our families, the team of 42 for 42 and supporters. We have had over 100 veterans and many of the families and friends of our fallen here this weekend and that’s what it is all about!
