In addition to the physical challenge of the trekking the event itself, teams are required to take up the challenge of raising funds for our Youth Programs by seeking sponsorship and support.
While this is our major revenue provider to fund our Kokoda Challenge Youth Programs, the events in themselves are an avenue for a diverse range of the community to experience the Kokoda mission and purpose.
Our events primarily attract everyday community members who are looking for a life changing experience whilst contributing to a worthy cause. However, all Kokoda Challenge events have school team categories (and trophies) and many schools include the event and it’s training in their extra curricular programs. The Kokoda Challenge events are truly unique as it is not just a case of pushing yourself through the enormous task – you need to do it as a team and learn the value of looking after one another.
