Trojan’s Trek Charity Walk 2022

After a promising start with over 200 registrations and numerous sponsors, the 2022 Trojan’s Trek Charity Walk looked set to break records!

The predicted bad weather (including thunderstorms and lightning) kept a few away. However, Mother Nature was kind and kept her rain clouds full until after the event had finished.

Belinda McKeown, a self-declared “army brat” with indigenous ties and a clear understanding of life in the Defence Force, gave an emotional and moving “Welcome to Country.” We were all touched by her words.

Our special guest and Patron, Her Excellency the Honourable Frances Adamson AC, Governor of South Australia, spoke before the start and showed both a keen interest in and understanding of what Trojans Trek is all about. The results achieved and life-changing tools learned on treks impressed her greatly.

And so the Walk began!! Runners, walkers, and strollers set off along the Torrens, hoping to beat the rain – and they did.

Winners were announced, awards were presented, raffles were drawn, auction items fiercely fought over, music and coffee were enjoyed, and delicious BBQ sausages were devoured … then the heavens opened!

A fabulous morning with amazing souls who helped raise around $18,000 for Trojans Trek, about half the cost of one Trek – great effort!

Special thanks to Reuben and his team from AEP Health Group for all their hard work organising the event and to our many sponsors and supporters for braving the weather and making the 2022 Walk such a memorable success.

Look forward to seeing you all (and more) again next year …

2020 Trojan’s Trek Charity Walk is going virtual!

We didn’t think we were going to be able to conduct a Charity Walk this year, but we have found a way we can!

The 2020 Trojans Trek Charity Walk is going to be a little different. It is going to be a virtual event whereby you can undertake your walk/run on any day during the month of October. The event itself will be hosted by Bolt for Gold, and registrations and donations can be taken via their app or website (see below for more information).

Under the current circumstances, we feel it is the best way to undertake The Trojans Trek Foundation’s major fundraiser in 2020. As a positive, it will allow the many Queensland supporters to join in on this year’s walk as well.

This year, you can either just make a donation OR register for the event. There are detailed instructions below or just follow this link.

If you want to register:

– this year we have options of either 2km, 5km, 10km, or 21km.

– Once you register you are able to download the app onto your phone which will allow you to press “start” when you are ready to do the walk/run (at any time during the month of October).

– When you have completed the distance it will record it!


If you want to make a donation: 

– head to this link

– Select the blue “donate now” button. (If you select the larger “donate” button, you’ll need to select Trojan’s Trek from a drop-down menu).

– Decide if you want to donate to or sponsor a user, or just hit “skip”

– Enter the amount you want to donate

– that’s it!
