Hi, my name is Alex and I’m ready to embark on the ultimate Aussie adventure challenge – a 250km trek over 9 days through the Simpson Desert. This is my opportunity to support Youngcare, a not-for-profit organisation that makes powerful and positive change to the lives of young people with high care needs.
Youngcare’s Grants programs bridge the gaps, by funding not only ‘reasonable and necessary’ disability items and service, but those that provide further choice, independence and quality of life for young people with high care needs.
So I’m packing my 10kg bag and pledging to cross over 1000 sand dunes to raise a minimum of $35,000 for Youngcare in the 2019 Simpson Desert Challenge.. It will be a daily mental and physical challenge, in a completely isolated environment that provides a striking reflection of the challenges that these young people face on a daily basis.
Please help me reach my goal, by donating/sponsoring as much as you can spare. Let’s spread awareness about this great organisation, that assists young people with high care needs to have the fulfilling young lives we all deserve. Together we can help Youngcare boldly tackle this national issue.
