Kokoda Trail 2024

By Matthew Carter

Matt and Anton are walking the Kokoda Trail and raising funds and awareness for bowel cancer and the Jodi Lee Foundation.

Matt and Anton (aka Carter and Woodsy) will be walking the Kokoda Trail in April 2024 and raising funds and awareness for the Jodi Lee Foundation. 

Carter and Woodsy are certified roof plumbers who have a passion for fitness and challenging themselves in every facet of their lives. Whether it is riding bikes, trekking, renovating, running after kids or hitting the gym, you can count on these two to push themselves to the limit. 

Their next challenge: The Kokoda Trail. A big bucket list item for them both, they are committed to making the most out of this experience and walking in memory of a loved one.  

Matt says: "I've been inspired by a family member who conquered Kokoda in 2007, but later battled bowel cancer." 

Anton says: "After losing my brother-in-law to cancer this year, it has inspired me to not wait around for the inevitable and kick some goals before I kick the bucket."

We are so grateful to Matt and Anton for committing to this incredible challenge, and raising funds and awareness for bowel cancer and the Jodi Lee Foundation. 

Any donation you can give, no matter how small, will help motivate Carter and Woodsy with their journey, and help the Jodi Lee Foundation to continue to raise awareness for the early detection and prevention of bowel cancer. 

Bowel cancer is Australia's second deadliest cancer, and leading cancer killer in 25-34 year olds, but it doesn't have to be. If detected early, up to 99% of bowel cancers can be successfully treated.  

Thank you for your support.
