This Trek Will Be Led By Paralympian Don Elgin.
“Having competed in 3 Paralympic Games, 4 World Champs, 2 World Cups and a Commonwealth Games, I can honestly say that completing the Kokoda Trek is by far the hardest challenge I’ve ever undertaken. When taking on any challenge it is paramount to have the right support network and there is none better than Kokoda Spirit. Wayne’s leadership and knowledge takes the trek to another level.
“It was Physically, Spiritually and Mentally challenging and was a life changing experience. It made it all the more rewarding knowing that with each step I was helping raise awareness for Sturge-Weber Syndrome and funds for The Grace Of Emma Duffy “
