Charity trekker looking for sponsors to raise funds for youth mental health
EWPA Accredited Trainer Craig Chadwick from Access Group is taking part in a five day, 135km ‘Cape2Cape Trek’ during March to raise funds in support of youth mental health. He is looking for sponsors now and says no amount is too small.
The trek is with Zero2Hero, a foundation that supports and educates people and raises funds and support for Zero2Hero’s youth mental health and suicide prevention programs.
Running from Sunday 22 – Friday 27 March, the cape2cape trek sees participants trek 135kms from Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse to Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse in the South West of Western Australia.
At a grade 4 difficulty level, the trek is considered a challenging and gruelling walk, with more than 20km of beach walking and harsh winds coming in from the Southern and Indian oceans.
Tracks during the trek may be long, rough and very steep and directional signage limited. There are easy sections along the way however some of the wilder parts are rugged and hard going.
Commitment & endurance
The trek requires you to have a mindset of commitment and endurance, a can-do attitude and tenacity. To tackle the whole walk over five days is a great challenge which requires a moderate to advanced level of fitness.
Craig will be tackling the trek with a team from Access Group and said: “The walk will be a test of stamina and will power over the five days, but I absolutely cannot wait to start.”
zero2hero educates, engages and empowers young people to be mental health heroes in the community. This includes programs that develop the resiliency of young people and educates and empowers them to support their own mental health and wellbeing, plus equipping young leaders with the skills required to prevent suicide in their community.
All fundraising & donation supports the WA-based charity: zero2hero.
