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.

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!

100km running complete

Tuesday 30th Mar
So today I have run 101km this month, which was my target at the beginning of March. It has been great to get out in the fresh air, get fitter and raise money for this great cause. Thank you Dean O’Cass for recruiting me! Go team!

I’m really enjoying this challenge and it is helping to ensure I go out each day for at least a walk, plus I set myself a challenge to run 100km this month too. All
In aid of a good cause.
