My Kokoda Track Journey

Logged

312km

Goal to Kokoda

96km

I’ve conquered Kokoda!

So far, I have helped Soldier On fund:

936

peer support
sessions

561

employment
support

70

psychology
sessions

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

Support My Challenge to Save Lives.

This year I am walking 312 kms during March in memory of my friend Waide Duncan. Waide was a former Physical Training instructor (PTI) and Loadmaster in the Royal Australian Air Force.


Why 312  kms you may ask. Waide was just 52 years of age when he passed away this week. 52kms is a relatively small distance to walk over the month so I have decided to walk 6 times his age. His PTI part will be driving me (and probably laughing at me) all the way!

Each morning of the 31 days in March I will start at 0530 (regardless of weather) and walk 10kms. On 2 days I will cover 11kms to make it up to 312kms for the month. This will be designated walking each morning and not incidental movement throughout the day. I will post up evidence of my walk each morning. Anyone is welcome to join me on any day. 
On the 31st of March My walk will be from Wickham, along Honeysuckle, out to Nobbys Lighthouse then up to finish on the ANZAC walk.

Waide was always extremely generous to me on my charity walks and I am hoping you all can be the same. Soldier On is an important organisation in the Veteran Community and one I support whole heartedly, so please give what you can.

Walking For Waide

Friday 11th Feb
Due to the circumstances of the last week (and with his family's permission), this year I am walking 312 kms during March in memory of my friend Waide Duncan. Waide was a former Physical Training instructor (PTI) and Loadmaster in the Royal Australian Air Force.

Why 312  kms you may ask. Waide was just 52 years of age when he passed away this week. 52kms is a relatively small distance to walk over the month so I have decided to walk 6 times his age. His PTI part will be driving me (and probably laughing at me) all the way!

Each morning of the 31 days in March I will start at 0530 (regardless of weather) and walk 10kms. On 2 days I will cover 11kms to make it up to 312kms for the month. This will be designated walking each morning and not incidental movement throughout the day. I will post up evidence of my walk each morning. Anyone is welcome to join me on any day. 
On the 31st of March My walk will be from Wickham, along Honeysuckle, out to Nobbys Lighthouse then up to finish on the ANZAC walk.

Waide was always extremely generous to me on my charity walks and I am hoping you all can be the same. Soldier On is an important organisation in the Veteran Community and one I support whole heartedly, so please give what you can.

Knew the man well, from smashing the life out of me at rookies and him just loving it, to throwing gear on and off aircraft with him. You doing this fully encompasses the man he was. Top guy, now and forever.
