My Kokoda Track Journey

Logged

288km

Goal to Kokoda

96km

I’ve conquered Kokoda!

So far, I have helped Soldier On fund:

1,301

peer support
sessions

780

employment
support

98

psychology
sessions

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

Ex-Gurkha's TRIPLE 96 Km run/jog/tab in S10 Respirator and boots challenge to support our veterans!

From 1st March to 31st March, I will be running/ marching/ Tabbing THREE 96 km distances (the last one will be on 30th March - all day - 27 1/2 laps Lake Monger) in S10 NBC respirator and bootsΒ to support Soldier On's life-saving mental health services to help our brave veterans and their families.

Why THREE 96km in S10 Respirator and boots? Because, I want to make it even more challenging! We (The Gurkhas) have a saying, "There is no one like us!" As an Ex-Gurkha, obviously it has to be slightly different!

96 km is length of the Kokoda Track and I want to honour the courage and sacrifice of our veterans, both past and present. Our (Gurkhas) forefathers fought alongside the ANZAC's at Gallipoli and since then we have been on numerous operations around the globe together. It is an honour to take on this challenge. We will remember them all. 🌺

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.
