For 90 years Legacy has been keeping the promise of one digger to his dying mate “to look after the missus and the kids”. Symbolic to the milestone the inaugural event saw Charlotte, our little 4 year old who lost her father in tragic circumstances at only 2 years of age, and Mrs Phyllis Schmidt our 94 year old widow commence the walk by untying the Legacy ribbon. Impact: The money spent played a big part in the 2019 service provisions of items as follows: 73 holidays provided at Legacy’s holiday cottages 82 Utility Grants proved 45 Bus trips 60 Education Grants 86 appointments facilitated for Legal and Financial counselling Why Support Legacy Legacy’s Remembrance Walk brings an opportunity to pay tribute and remember the sacrifices made by our once serving members of the Australian Defence Force, our heroes and their families. Just like our Legacy family, with our youngest only 5 years old to our oldest who turned 108 years old; the demographics of participants in 2019 was diverse. Ranging from city commuters, families, current and ex-serving members of the Australian Defence Force, Government departments, schools, clubs, corporate businesses and many defence-related enterprises that provide goods and services directly to Defence, and deliver into the supply chains of prime contractors in South Australia, the defence state.
