TREK for KYDS 2019!!

#trekforKYDS2019 – April 5-12 South West Tassie

On Friday the 5th of April an intrepid team of KYDS supporters and representatives are setting off on a trek which will cover an area around South West Wilderness of Tasmania. Set in a remote and inaccessible region, this epic adventure will include unspoiled scenery, rugged peaks, wild rivers, unique flora and fauna, and a long, rugged coastline. Parts of the wilderness are more than 50 km from the nearest road, so the only access to the area is by foot, air or sea!!
PLEASE ‘hike’ up KYDS funds by donating to the group via this donations page:

-> All funds raised will go towards the ongoing provision of free and easy to access mental health support for young people across northern Sydney.
