The 16th annual Trek4Kidz took place 18-25 August 2012 and saw 50 people brave dirt tracks as they travelled from Cessnock to Orange, Cobar,Tibooburra, Arkaroola, Wentworth and finishing in Griffith to help transform the lives of seriously ill kids and their families by raising $95,000.
A big thank you to all the trekker’s sponsors and supporters in helping us achieve this result.
Next year’s calendar will be available in December which highlights the adventure.
