Our Kokoda trekkers are caught up in the history, camaraderie and challenge of it all
In 2012 a small team comprising Westpac staff and valued customers from across Australia and the Pacific Islands will undertake a trek along the World War II Kokoda track to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Isurava. Kokoda is one of the world’s toughest treks and upon completion of this 8 day adventure the group will have climbed nearly 5,500 metres and descended almost the same figure; through mud, jungle and humid conditions.
Moneys raised support homeless and children
The group has an ambitious fundraising target, with all monies raised going to Mission Australia or Save the Children Fund in Papua New Guinea. Westpac will match dollar for dollar the money raised by Westpac employees as part of matching gifts.
All donations and encouragement gratefully appreciated as we embark on this challenge of a life time.
