Goal to Kokoda

96km

I’ve conquered Kokoda!

So far, I have helped Soldier On fund:

770

peer support
sessions

462

employment
support

58

psychology
sessions

...to support the mental health of our brave veterans to help them march on.

Support My Challenge to Save Lives.

This March, I am conquering 96km to support Soldier On's life-saving mental health services to help our brave veterans and their families.

Why 96km? Because I'm taking on the length of the Kokoda Track to honour the courage and sacrifice of our veterans, both past and present.

Please support my challenge to prevent veteran suicide and help save lives.

Together, we can help our heroes march on.

Thanks so much for your support.

Mid March

Saturday 19th Mar
After reaching 96km carrying 16kgs, it’s time to reset the goal and go double or nothing - 192kms carrying 16kgs by 31 March 2022!

It’s been great getting involved in this initiative. Plenty kms covered in the early mornings and late evenings so far this month. Time spent reflecting on my own experiences in the military, mates both ex and currently serving and especially about those that we have lost.

To all our Veterans, past and present… Soldier On!

Thank you to my Sponsors
