Challenge yourself like never before!

9 October 2015

Challenge yourself like never before!

The ultimate Australian adventure challenge is back in 2016!

For nine days between 28 April and 8 May, 18 bold trekkers will conquer harsh conditions and endless sand dunes whilst walking more than 250 kilometres across the Simpson Desert, raising vital funds for young Aussies with high care needs.

The trek is both physically and emotionally challenging with trekkers finding themselves in a completely isolated environment where there is little control over personal choice – a reflection of the challenges that young people with high care needs living in aged care face on a daily basis.

The challenge is open to individuals and this year we also have a number of options for corporates to increase positive staff engagement, corporate social responsibility and wellbeing within their organisations.

If you or someone you know is up for the Youngcare Simpson Desert Challenge 2016, with enduring friendships built along the way, contact Rachell Buckley on 07 3041 3413 or email rbuckley@youngcare.com.au.
