We are very excited to announce that Go1 will have 2 teams in this years Kokoda Challenge Walk to raise funds for the Kokoda Youth Foundation. On June 5th our teams will set off on a grueling 30km walk which winds through some of Brisbane's toughest terrain and isn't for the faint hearted.
Established in 2004, The Kokoda Youth Foundation supports young Australians, inspiring them to do extraordinary things by challenging their deeply held beliefs, allowing them to explore their limits and abilities, and providing them with opportunities for personal growth.
Central to Kokoda Youth Foundation is the Spirit of Kokoda, embodying courage, endurance, mateship and sacrifice. These principles take their origin from Australian soldiers who fought on the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea during WWII. Still relevant today, KYF has developed programs designed to reignite these timeless values in the younger generation.
We are putting the call out to anyone who is able to donate to our teams, and contribute to the great work of the Kokoda Youth Foundation. Throughout the event, our team will be providing live updates using the hashtag #Go1KokodaChallenge across Twitter and Instagram so you can keep track of their progress, and witness the agony on their faces in real time.
If you would like to support the Go1 team, you can donate via the following links:
As you can see below, our teams have been training hard for the even, so please donate to help in making a real difference to the lives of these teens involved with the youth fondations, and your local community.

All funds raised 100% benefit the Kokoda Youth Foundation charity, which run youth programs in QLD and VIC. These programs aim to give direction and guidance to young teens through tests of physical endurance, behaviour based learning and instilling the values of the Kokoda Campaign of World War II.
The program participants are given the opportunity to earn their place in on trip to Papua New Guinea to either walk the Kokoda Track or visit the local villages and war memorials to further instil the messages shown by our Australian diggers on the Track: courage, endurance, mateship and sacrifice.
