Take on chal­lenge of Kokoda

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

MORE than 2000 peo­ple, in­clud­ing 250 school teams, are reg­is­tered to par­tic­i­pate in the eighth Kokoda Chal­lenge on June 2, rais­ing money for our lo­cal youth.

The Bris­bane Kokoda Chal­lenge, run by the Kokoda Youth Foun­da­tion, al­lows teams of two, three or four to con­quer an en­durance event of up to 48km through some of Bris­bane’s tough­est ter­rain in D’Aguilar Na­tional Park.

It’s all about keep­ing the Kokoda spirit of courage, en­durance, mate­ship and sac­ri­fice alive within our so­ci­ety, while chang­ing lives of lo­cal youth.

Event pro­ceeds fund the Kokoda Youth Foun­da­tion’s pro­grams that take youth, in­clud­ing those at-risk, through ad­ven­ture-based learn­ing, com­mu­nity ser­vice, team build­ing and to Pa­pua New Guinea to hike the real Kokoda Track.

The Kokoda Youth Foun­da­tion are en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to rally the troops, fundraise for lo­cal youth and tick a big-ticket item off your bucket list – The Kokoda Chal­lenge!

Regis­ter to par­tic­i­pate or vol­un­teer at the web­site koko­dachal­lengeevents.com. Reg­is­tra­tions close on Mon­day, May 14.
