After eight grueling days spent trekking the Kokoda Trail through nearly 100km of amazing and rugged terrain, a team of five dedicated individuals have managed to raise over $22,000 for Cancer Council WA.

Departing on Anzac Day, the team of Cancer Council WA staff and other like-minded supporters braved stifling conditions to make their way through the mountains of Papua New Guinea, arriving at Port Moresby on Friday 2 May for some much-needed rest and relaxation.

Along the trek, our adventurers took in the breathtaking natural scenery or Papua New Guinea’s jungles and rivers, walking the same trail that Australian soldiers made during the defense of Papua New Guinea in World War II, including a final stop at the Bomana War Cemetery, the resting place of over 3600 Australian soldiers.

The entire Cancer Council WA community would like to thank each and every one of our amazing participants, for their commitment not only to making the trek, but for their commitment to a cancer free future.

We look forward to our next adventure!
