My chosen distance target: 1056km.

My Activity Tracking



Goal to Kokoda


You’ve conquered Kokoda!

Support my 1056km challenge to save lives (96km of walks and 960km of riding)

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!
