Every person is one of a kind and everyone has something great to offer. We have all encountered difficult roads along our journey and this one will be epic.

We have chosen to do this challenge to firstly honor the brave men from the 39th Battalion who undertook a mammoth task in defense of our nation in 1942. In addition to that we have the opportunity to raise some money for a great foundation that impacts many young people at a time in their life when they are so impressionable and influenced by many factors.   

Our other reasons for undertaking this task are varied but the main one is very simple; can we do it….

We’ve researched this challenge and had a lot of advice from Michael, the veteran in our team who completed this course last year. We are under no misconceptions that there will be blood, a lot of sweat, and more than likely tears through the 5000 metres of elevation along the 96 kilometre course.

So please consider a donation but either way please make sure you follow Matt, Shane, Michael and myself on this journey, it will be extraordinary!

We're tackling the Kokoda Challenge this year.....
