Are you our next Chapter leader? Can you coordinate events? Do you have a passion for supporting those who have served or are serving in our military or emergency services and their immediate families?

It’s fantastic if you’re qualified to run fitness sessions. If you’re not, that’s ok because you can tap in to the smorgasbord of local offerings e.g. Frontline Yoga, fitness clubs, Pilates studios etc.
