Done and Dusted!

I am extremely proud and happy to say that AMSG fielded three teams of four people in the weekends Kokoda Challenge. a 96km endurance of rocky hill climbs and descents through the Gold Coast hinterland, with the real distance maybe a little closer to 110km. huge effort from everyone,  All AMSG entrants showed a massive heart, wonderful teamwork, a stack of humility and a very good sense of humour in battling fatigue, cold and pain to get through the event. Due to injury and fatigue we saw the 12 entrants reduce to 6 finishers for the event.

Kokoda Gold Coast has been conquered! through some pretty tough moments, internal battles to continue, freezing cold, relentless aching of places i didnt think could ache we as a team completed the Kokoda challenge! some 34 + hours of continual trudging.


the support the teams and I recieved provided the encouragement, faith and drive to complete and im truly thankful.


Locked and Loaded - Thankyou

Well it is t minus 36 hours. i am truly thankful for the support and generous donations. this will be the added incentive and drive i need to succeed and complete the course.
