Join us as we pay our respects to our wartime heroes of old walking to support people and their families living with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in Queensland. Each trek group will hold commemorative ceremonies at the battle sites to pay our respects to our Australian troops and will attend an emotional service at Brigade Hill. The Kokoda Track stretches 96 kilometres through what is arguably some of the most rugged and wild jungle in the world. This track holds an extremely important place in Australia’s history. From July 1942, the route over the Owen Stanley Range witnessed the battle hardened Japanese war machine encounter young, unprepared, untrained unproven and hopelessly outnumbered Australian soldiers. After completing this trek you will feel proud to have paid your respects to Australian wartime history & have completed a personal physical challenge. In addition you will be part of raising funds and awareness for MND and Me to achieve their mission ‘to care and to cure’.
