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.
