The R U OK? Larapinta Trek 2019 is an opportunity to join like-minded people, united by the desire to raise money to empower people to connect and support those who may be struggling with life.
The R U OK? Larapinta Trek 2019 brings together supporters for a memorable adventure trek in Central Australia. You’ll be part of an incredible team, raising awareness and funds for a cause close to your heart. You’ll stand united, as a team, on the Larapinta Trail, knowing the difference you’ve made.
On the R U OK? Larapinta Trek 2019, you will trek the Larapinta Trail, regarded as one of Australia’s premier walking tracks. From the old Alice Springs Telegraph Station to the peak of Mount Sonder, the trail stretches 223 kilometres along the backbone of the West MacDonnell Ranges. Over 5 days, you will journey along the most spectacular and rewarding sections of the trail, trekking over 60 kilometres. You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and explore the beautiful mountains, valleys, rivers and the dramatic desert landscapes of the Red Centre.
By day, you will visit sites sacred to the Arrernte people and trek beside one of the world’s oldest river systems. At night, you will fall asleep to the sounds of native wildlife under a blanket of stars.
Best of all, you will be raising funds for R U OK? to help empower people to connect and support those who may be struggling with life.
R U OK?’s vision is a world where we’re all connected and are protected from suicide.
R U OK? CEO Katherine Newton wants every Australian to feel confident to start a conversation with someone they are worried about.
“We want the R U OK? message to reach every corner of the country. Asking, Listening, Encouraging action and Checking in are simple steps anyone can take to support a friend, loved one or workmate who might be struggling with life. By taking this challenge you’ll help us start more of these life-changing conversations.”Every dollar you raise and every step you take on this incredible challenge will help us empower people to connect and support those who may be struggling with life. Your fundraising efforts will help R U OK? strengthen our campaign resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders who may be struggling with life.
