See the largest military convoy ever conducted in Australia arrive in Bendigo on 12 October!

The Lightning Bolt II Invictus Convoy is a procession of military, firefighting, ambulance, police and other vehicles travelling through four states in October to raise awareness for PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and support the Invictus Games.

Our procession will be setting up at the Bendigo RSL in the afternoon. Everyone is welcome to come along, see the spectacle and chat about post traumatic stress with psychologists, Invictus Games athletes, experts, first responders and veterans, including Stand Tall 4 PTS founder Tony Dell (veteran, former Australian cricketer and PTSD spokesperson)... and of course, the kids can climb on and into the firetruck.

Join us in shining a light on post traumatic stress and the impact it has on the lives of so many - particularly our military servicemen and women and first responders.
