Trekking the Kokoda Trail for a Loving Nana
Trekking the Kokoda trail has always been on David Lloyd’s bucket list. Having watched his beautiful nana Kate Harkins win the fight against breast cancer, David decided he too would challenge himself raising funds to help combat this disease that takes the lives of far too many Australian women. Next year in April on the 75th anniversary of the Kokoda trail, David will embark on his journey, dedicating it to his beloved nana.
“I watched my nana battle and defeat breast cancer so I wanted to do something special for her. I decided to dedicate the walk to her while raising funds for Australian Breast Cancer Research,” David said.
Well on his way to achieving his goal of $5,000, David has already raised over $1,000 to put towards research projects in the fight for a cure and prevention for the disease that affects 1 in 8 women.
“I’m already sitting at $1,300 towards my goal so it’s going up nicely. I chose for my funds to support ABCR because as the logo suggests we need to find the missing piece to finally get rid of this horrible disease.”
Preparing himself for the 96 kilometre journey, David has already begun his training, determined to do his lovely Nana proud.
“I’m on a specialised PT program to assist with conditioning, flexibility and general fitness. I go to the gym three to four times a week and also try to squeeze in a 10km run twice a week.”
We wish David the best of luck on his journey and look forward to keeping you updated on his journey!
