On Friday 9 November, for the second year, Haynes Group sponsored and participated in the 42 for 42 Suncorp Stadium Stomp.
The Stomp is a 42 hour challenge honouring the forty one soldiers who lost their lives in Afghanistan and their families, as well as a 42nd hour for soldiers who have returned home with injuries or mental illness and those who have succumbed to suicide upon their return. All funds raised from the Stomp go towards building a memorial garden at Suncorp Stadium.
Teams in the Stomp carried 42kg for the duration of their sponsored hour, and many walked with families of the fallen soldiers. The Haynes Group, joined by members of Hastings Deering, walked to honour Pte Gregory Michael Sher and Lt Michael Fussell.
The 42 for 42 Stomp began on 9 November in the late afternoon, and will culminate in a Remembrance Day service on Sunday, 11 November at 10:30am.
