TREK TO CONNECT 2018

Crossing the finish line was a feeling like no other for our 68 team members who recently completed the massive task of a 42km trek across a beautiful slice of South East Queensland. This was not a race, but a life-changing experience, all about connecting with nature and as a team, fundraising for vital Wesley Mission Queensland services and initiatives including:

  • Suicide Prevention Training - Tailored evidence-based workshops and presentations adapted to suit a range of audiences including businesses, community members and health workers.
  • Group61 - A volunteer mental health befriending program to help reduce social isolation and encourage the growth of self-confidence. Group 61 includes specialised support for youth exiting care, adults with mental health concerns and older people living in the community.
  • Young Men Suicide Prevention Program (Marcus Mission) - Linking, consolidating support and building capacity in young men (18-25 years), their support networks and communities.

We’re thrilled with the enormous efforts from everyone involved who have raised funds for suicide prevention. A special mention to our highest fundraiser – Craig Percival from Woollam Constructions. Craig travelled from Mackay to complete Do a Trek to Connect with his team of eight. Craig’s fundraising efforts contributed $12,298 (and counting)! We’d also like to acknowledge the amazing achievements from FKG, beyond our expectation, their two teams raised $32,656. Well done FKG!

Congratulations to everyone involved in making this event the success it was. Suicide has a devastating impact on families and communities. Every step of Do a Trek to Connect has helped bring change to those that need it most.

WELL DONE TREKKERS – 42km, 11.5 hours. Amazing.
