42 for 42 Events
For many years, the 42 for 42 organisation has hosted some amazing annual events, gathering veterans, friends, family, as well as some amazing people who want to learn more about our journey.
Some of these events include our Annual Luncheon, 42 Hour Challenge held at Suncorp Stadium, the 42 Ball Bash in Victoria or our recent event, the 42 Hour Endurance Challenge held at the Enoggera Barracks in Queensland.
We wanted to showcase all our major events to highlight the support that our community has and how they have been involved throughout.
4th Annual Memorial Luncheon (2021)
This year’s event was once again held at the Queensland Cricketers Club with special guests including Dr Brendan Nelson (AO), as well as great cricketing legends Ian Healy (AO), Carl Rackemann (OAM) and Michael Kasprowicz.
Nothing was going to stop us from holding our pinnacle of annual events, the 42 Hour Challenge. With limited numbers due to the current events of COVID, we still managed to gather friends, families and supporters for this monumental event.
Teams from the 6th & 7th Brigades created our first 42 Hour Endurance event at Enoggera Barracks and collectively pedalled 6992km, ran 927km and pack-marched 563km around the clock in honour of our fallen.

2nd Annual 42 Ball Bash (2018)
Into its second year, our event started to grow with many people getting involved with the walk, with each hour honouring and remembering those that have fallen in Afghanistan, as well as those that fallen since returning and their families.
Where it all began. Back in 2018, Seam Mulqueen had the vision to create something to remember and honour those that had fallen in Afghanistan, as well as the veterans that have struggled with their return, including their families.
