WHY?

Raise funds for the Kokoda Youth Foundation

Are you up for the challenge?

The Kokoda Challenge is coming to the Sunshine Coast for the very first time in 2022! 

The event will commence with a commemorative service to honour Kokoda veterans and all of the other men and women in service.

Through this event, you will be raising funds for Australian kids who participate in Youth Programs run by the Kokoda Youth Foundation. We are a local charity with a mission to change the lives of Aussie teens in the community by providing experiential programs that engage and inspire them to reach their full potential.  

We also aim to educate all Australians about the history of the Kokoda Campaign in 1942 and offer a life-changing experience for all Kokoda Challenge competitors in our amazing team events!
