For many years now, The Pride has entered teams into the Kokoda Challenge. The Kokoda Challenge is Australia’s toughest team endurance event, testing the physical and mental limits of every participant. Held annually, the challenge involves walking through the day and night no matter the weather conditions, over 4000m elevation in 39 hours. Kokoda honours the Kokoda diggers who fought for our freedom along the Kokoda Track in 1942.
Kokoda changes more than the lives of our teams though, it also changes the lives of Australian youth. Through this event, the Pride raises funds for Kokoda Youth Foundation, a local charity positively impacting local teens in our community.
Our participation has grown year on year, and in 2022 we have 50 participants undertaking this adventure, walking non-stop for either 48km or 96km in some of the toughest terrain Australia has to offer.
This challenge truly aligns with our core values and we are excited about raising funds to help young people in Australia.
