This year Veterans’ Health Week (VHW) will be held from Saturday 21st to Sunday 29th October and the theme will be Physical Activity.
The week is an opportunity for veterans, war widows, widowers, current and ex-Australian Defence Force members and their families to improve and maintain the health and wellbeing of themselves and their friends.
DVA will be partnering with ex-service organisations and community groups to develop a program of fun and interactive activities at a local level.
This year ESOs and community groups are holding VHW activities in every state and territory to promote the theme of physical activity.
Take the opportunity offered by VHW to try a new activity and improve your physical fitness. When you’ve found an activity that you’d like to attend, check the access details, location and date, and call the VHW activity organiser to confirm your attendance.
