I am tackling the Kokoda Challenge...

I’m taking on the 2021 Brisbane 30km Kokoda Challenge!

In June 2021, my teammates and I will be tackling the Brisbane 30km Kokoda Challenge - Australia’s toughest team endurance event. 

This event raises funds for Aussie kids who participate in the Youth Programs run by the Kokoda Youth Foundation.

The Kokoda Youth Foundation is a local charity and their mission is to change the lives of Aussie teens by providing experiential programs that engage and inspire them to reach their full potential.  

I’m tackling the Kokoda Challenge to push my own physical and mental boundaries, and to change the lives of youth in our community. 2020 was a hard year on us all, your support and donation to this cause means the world to me and my team – thank you!
