Help us change the lives of young Aussies!

My teammates and I will be hiking some of the harshest terrain on the East Coast of Australia to raise funds for the Kokoda Youth Foundation’s life changing Youth Programs. We will be embodying the spirit of Kokoda by walking in memory of our Australian diggers.

The Kokoda Youth Foundation is a Gold Coast charity that runs experiential Youth Programs, inspiring young Aussies to reach their full potential. The foundation takes kids from all walks of life and provides them with free programs that have life changing capabilities. These kids are fondly known as the Kokoda Kids.

You can support our team in The Kokoda Challenge and Kokoda Youth Foundation in their mission to change lives by making a tax-deductible donation today!
