Seed Foundation Australia is putting together a fundraising Kokoda Track that will raise money towards the health education and wraparound support services offered to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander secondary students and their remote communities, changing the trajectory for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders across Australia.
This money will be used to improve the social, emotional and general wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. It will also make adequate support structure accessible for them to complete secondary school, gain health literacy and transition towards meaningful employment. Not for the faint-hearted, this once-in-a-lifetime adventure with every step taken, will help Seed Foundation Australia achieve its vision of 1000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students completing a health program. In summary A Trek Towards 1000!
Seed Foundation Target
Seed Foundation Australia has set itself an ambitious fundraising target: $500,000. This target will be achieved through the efforts of many highly motivated trekkers with minimum sponsorship targets set for each trekker. In addition Bill James (Flight Centre co-founder) will donate $500 for every participant!
In 1942, the Kokoda Track area was the scene for bitter fighting. Today, walking the track hasbecome a pilgrimage for many Australians, and those honouring the ANZAC spirit. One of the world’s greatest treks, the Kokoda Track links the south and north coast of Papua New Guinea across 96 kilometres of rugged mountain terrain, tropical rainforest and unspoiled villages.
