In September 2013, we launched the ‘Kokoda Leadership Trek 2014’ fundraising campaign with the support of Gofundraise. The young leaders and their mentors were responsible as part of their leadership training for raising $4,000 each towards the costs of their trek of the Kokoda Track.
The campaign ran until April 2014 and we are delighted to announce that the group exceeded their target of $92,000. With the support of the community, friends, family and corporate donations they have raised a total of $95,804.47.
The group has arrived home with weary bodies, sore feet and a slow stagger. However, they are home more resilient, with fresh ideas about what is possible for their future.
Individually and together, they have learned, challenged, have conquered and taken the opportunity to be the leader in their lives in the hope that they can help and support others to lead.
