My chosen distance target: 96km.

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!

More than half way there

This is such a great challenge, it is keeping me accountable every day, love it! Raising money for a worthy cause at the same time, brilliant. 57kms down, 39 to go.

Day 6

Saturday 6th Mar
Day 6 and tracking well with 25kms done. Turned out this challenge has been a great incentive to push myself that little bit more. 

Day One

Monday 1st Mar
Off to a great start with 4kms under my belt. Was a hell of a lot easier than for those on the Kokoda. Have to keep reminding myself of that throughout this challenge.

Thank you to my Sponsors
