Just like our upcoming Bravery Trek, the Bravery Trust State of Origin was a chance to celebrate the success of veterans and initiate conversations about the challenges facing those who’ve been injured during service.

Congratulations to ex-Army team-mates Pete Arbuckle and Zac Schumacher who won the match playing for the Queensland Maroons. Pete was awarded player of the match. Both players will represent Australia in England in October this year.

Bravery Trust partnered with Queensland Wheelchair Rugby League to bring the State of Origin to Townsville.

The State of Origin event was livestreamed by Queensland Rugby league and New South Wales Rugby league to more than 200,000 followers and also streamed on QPlus.TV.

We take great pride seeing our ADF veterans achieving their goals and contributing to their local communities.
