96km

You’ve conquered Kokoda!

Support my 96km challenge to save lives

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

Why 96kms? Because that's the length of the Kokoda Track to symbolise the courage and sacrifice of our service members.

Please March On with me and support my challenge, and together we can save lives.

$37 can fund a peer support session to 3 veterans, giving a safe and supportive space and an important first step in gaining the help they need.

Thanks so much for your support and wish me luck!

My Updates

“It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe.”

Saturday 6th Mar
This quote, by Muhammad Ali, reminds us that it's not just the long journey and mountains ahead that wear us out. It can be the little things like the pebble that deplete our motivation and energy to continue forward. Notice the little things and take a moment to nurture yourself along the way.
