Fundraise for a cause and join Team Vinnies in the Outback for a challenging and inspiring trek along the Larapinta trail.
On May 2, we will be putting on our hiking boots and embarking on the incredible journey through sand and rock to raise funds for Vinnies services that continue to empower young disadvantaged children and give them a second chance at life.
Partnering with Huma Charity Challenge, we follow a week long itinerary that will appeal to walkers, runners, trekkers and anyone enthusiastic to explore Australia’s unique terrain and Aboriginal history.
Join us for this unforgettable fundraising adventure and you’ll be supported every step of the way. We'll help you reach your fundraising goal of $4,000 and provide you with everything you need to go to your networks and ask them to sponsor you. All donations towards your fundraising goal are tax deductible and the funds you raise will go towards crucial Vinnies services and programs to help people in need. On the fitness side, we will give you advice and assistance to physically train and mentally prepare for your journey. We will take on each challenge together!

Rae Johnston, Editor of Junkee, TV personality and proud Wiradjuri woman, will be joining us as we trek along the Larapinta, raising money as we go.
“I'm a passionate hiker - out and about almost weekend - and the opportunity to trek through Arrernte Country for a whole week is a dream come true.
Not only that, but the cause is one close to my heart. As a single teenage Mum I faced a lot of challenges, and a helping hand can make all the difference.
I hope that by taking on this challenge (and a challenge it will be!) I can encourage others to support the great work Vinnies does for families doing it tough."
Sign up now to join Rae and our other passionate fundraisers.
Your adventure awaits!
