Get Active Fitness has four teams entered in the new Sunshine Coast Kokoda challenge on June 18.  

As part of the challenge, they have had to raise funds which goes towards the Kokoda Youth Foundation for Australian kids who participate in youth programs.  As Rachel Lockman from Get Active Fitness shared, “I know I speak for everyone when I say how appreciative and humbled we have been by all the people and businesses who have generously donated things for our amazing raffle, bought tickets, volunteered their time, and contributed towards our fundraising efforts, which in the end raised an incredible $4169.30.” 

The Get Active team would like to also say a big thank you to Woolworths Maleny for letting them have a BBQ, using their equipment and donating all the food.  

“We had a minimal amount to raise for each team and we did so well because of so much support from our local town,” continued Rachel. “This is a great event to honour the Kokada veterans and all of the other men and women in service, and to educate Australians about the history of the Kokoda campaign in 1942.”

The Get Active Fitness teams have had so much fun raising these funds and are now in training for the event itself.  “We are looking forward to taking on this challenge and showing our respect to our servicemen and women. It’s things like this that really show what Get Active Fitness is all about, and what a fun and supportive fitness group we are.”
