In 2014, the Brisbane RAR Stomp for Support raised over $5,000 for Trojan's Trek. Trojan's Trek is a peer-to-peer rehabilitation program for Contemporary Veterans and in September 2014, ran their first ever all-female trek, in conjunction with the annual all-male trek. Initially started in the South Australian Flinders Ranges by a group of concerned Vietnam Veterans, the program has been running successfully for 7 years. In 2013, UniSA evaluated 6 years worth of comprehensive participant data. The results were classed as excellent, establishing new bench marks for peer support programs of this nature.
With a large Defence community present in Queensland, Trojan's Trek has recognised a need for a South East Queensland Program. In August 2015, Trojan's Trek will run its first South-East Queensland trek.
