My Activity Tracking



Goal to Kokoda


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.

As I couldn't do the Mountain Challenge this year I will be walking 10 Mini Aussie Summits in Canberra during March instead.

So far we have walked up:

Mount Painter Sunset walk.

The Pinnacle.

Davidson's Hill.

Resevoir Hill (Lawson Hill).

Wide Brown Land Hill to Dairy Farmer's Hill.

Gossan Hill.

Dairy Farmer's Hill for Sunrise. This was definitely a March with the Stomp Dogs setting a fast pace!

Percival Hill.

Mount Majura. This was hard work.

Gibraltar Peak with the Stomp Dogs. This was incredible but definitely a hard climb!

As well as the lovely Lake Burley Griffin walk (with hot air balloons!) at Sunrise.

Woohoo! I have completed 10 Mini Aussie Summits (in Canberra) but sill have 20km's to go to reach my goal at the end of the month.

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!
