The 11 stop journey will see two of our OG members travel across QLD bringing communities together for BBQ's, beers and a chance to meet fellow members and their families. The purpose of this tour is to jump off the keyboard and get face to face with those struggling as a way of showing we are serious and we care. Our goal for this tour is to encourage anyone struggling in life who are being silent to find the strength to seek help
