It is a very small group of daring men and women who have taken on the Simpson Desert Challenge for Youngcare.
It is an even smaller group of men and women who have taken it on for a second time.
In 2019 I am proud to announce I will be joining the Youngcare team as a trek leader to help 15 other trekkers take on one of the most physical and mentally demanding challengers of their lives.
It’s not just the trek I have decided to take on. I have also put my hand back up with a target to raise $35,000 for Youngcare. I am excited to say, all the money I raise will be staying right here supporting Youngcare in the Toowoomba region.
There is a residential and care crisis throughout Australia for young people with high care needs. Young Australians are being left behind in aged care homes, hospital rooms, rehabilitation centres – inappropriate accommodation that is not suitable for their age and simply not good enough. The crux of this crisis is the lack of opportunity for each person living with disability to choose their own pathway due to limited options.
If your not already make sure to follow my dedicated facebook page to hear about how you can help support my trek but also attend some of the exciting events we have planned.
