Gabi & Twiggy take Kokoda for Edmund Rice

Learning’s pretty great right? It’s probably why you’re gainfully employed right now. And not a 30-year-old still living with your folks. With chip stains down your shirt. So, how’d you feel about helping disadvantage kids across the globe have access to education?

That’s the purpose of The Edmund Rice Foundation. And why we’re asking for your support right now. We’re supporting their life-changing work by capturing a film of their Kokoda experience to help raise awareness and funds for all their important work.

And yep, that means we’ll be right there with them. Trudging the K-track. A ribbon of dense, impenetrable rainforests, treacherous white water and steep mountainous inclines. It’s gonna be hard yakka. But it’ll be worth it. Hey, we might even learn something too.

But before we sweat and stink it out (no showers for 8 days. Lord), we need raise some funds to get us to Papua New Guinea. Everything you give will help us get on our way to help with Edmund Rice’s PNG education program.

Stay tuned to the page for updates. We leave for the trek on August 12!
