My Kokoda Track Journey

106km

Goal to Kokoda

96km

I’ve conquered Kokoda!

So far, I have helped Soldier On fund:

737

peer support
sessions

442

employment
support

55

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.

Final walk done

Thursday 31st Mar

Finished!!

Thursday 31st Mar
Well we did it. 
106km all up for the girls and I, plus another 35km walked by our wonderful friends Tony, Leanne, Matt & Rachel who offered to pitch in in the last week in case we couldn’t make it once we were locked in iso. 

That’s right, we’ve finished our last week of March On whilst in isolation due to a house full of Covid. The kids first, then me today. It definitely added an extra challenge, but it didn’t stop us. The last 21km were walked around the yard. 

Once again we are more grateful than we can say, to everyone who has donated to our March on fundraising efforts. We have been blown away!
Together with my awesome team mates Belle and Naomi, we have raised almost $14,000 which is more than we could have dreamed of at the start of this month! 

All we can say is thank you 🙏

Monday 14th Mar
Not quite half way through the month and we continue to be blown away by the support. We’ve had two beautiful friends join us in the challenge, and together our team has raised an incredible $10,000 for Soldier On!!

We could not be more thrilled, and so proud to be doing something that can have a significant impact in helping others who are struggling with mental health illnesses. 
We think of Dave/Daddy on every walk/run/scoot/ride - sometimes with smiles and laughter and sometimes with tears, but always with pride. 

We’ve now covered 51km and will keep clocking up as many km’s as we can fit in to this month! Thank you SO much to everyone who has supported us!!

Love Ange, Ellie & Megan 

Thank you!!

Wednesday 2nd Mar
Wow I am overwhelmed with the support already. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated - I can see that my goal of raising $1000 for Soldier On was far too conservative and have boosted it to $2500.  
It means so much to me to have you all getting behind this cause that is so close to my heart. xx

Thank you to my Sponsors
