Bleeding Steps

We're tackling the Kokoda Challenge.

We are a group of Paediatricians who work with children and adolescents who face developmental, physical or mental health challenges.  We advocate for and encourage our patients to confront those challenges head-on and to be the best that they can be, and we look to set an example. 

The Kokoda Challenge is gruelling 96km trail race through the Gold Coast Hinterland which climbs over 5000m.  Teams train for over 6 months with the single minded goal of finishing as they started - as a team.  We look to show that, as a team, with determination and perseverance, this group of less than athletically blessed Paediatricians can complete this event.  We hope in the process to demonstrate that with resoluteness, anything is possible. 

The Kokoda Challenge raises money for the Kokoda Youth Foundation, which supports, mentors and teaches life skills to teenagers in our community.  We are proud to be raising money for this terrific program and greatly appreciate your support. 

Thank you to our Sponsors
