Introducing Brian – our trekking superstar. Taking on the incredible challenge of the ANZAC Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea, this once in a lifetime adventure was not for the faint hearted.

Retracing the footsteps of ANZAC troops in World War II, Brian trekked over 96KM over 9 days through some of the most difficult terrain on earth. Battling through hot, humid days, cold nights and muddy terrain, Brian raised funds for the Salvos’ 2017 Red Shield Appeal.

Did you know that every year, thousands of people in our community are forced to give up meals, go without heating and miss out on medical and dental treatment.

After paying for accommodation, the average Salvation Army client lives on less than $17 per day to cover things like groceries, bills, clothing, school and medical costs.

“Vulnerable Australians rely on the Salvos every day. Their services range from providing shelter for the homeless, asssisting families in crisis through practical support and financial counselling, to guiding people with addictions through to a clean and healthy lifestyle.

The Salvos were there in 1942 providing support to our troops too”. – Brian

Ensuring the Salvos can continue to give hope where it’s needed most, Brian smashed his fundraising target and raised over $4700!
