This year we are celebrating a huge fundraising milestone for Interplast Australia and New Zealand. Over the past 5 years Interplast has partnered with Inspired Adventures to run some exciting fundraising adventures around the world, and those adventure have now raised $1 million!
Traversing the Great Wall of China, walking in the footsteps of the Incas to Machu Picchu, retracing the trail of Australia’s heroes on the Kokoda track and most recently reaching the dizzying heights of Everest Base Camp. These adventures were certainly not for the faint hearted! Perhaps the most extraordinary part, is that it’s everyday people, along with the wonderful Interplast ambassador Turia Pitt, who’ve taken on these extraordinary challenges to repair bodies and rebuild lives throughout Asia.
“This exciting milestone is testimony to the bravery, the determination, the passion and the achievements of all of the adventurers. Every step taken, all of the training, the fundraising events and hard work can never be underestimated. Congratulations Team Interplast!” – Inspired Adventures’ CEO Justine Curtis.
"Reaching EBC was a truly rewarding experience. Meeting the people and seeing how our fundraising helps the Nepalese people and meeting volunteers at the local hospital made the efforts and the hard work to finish the trek so much more satisfying. " - Sandra Fenton, Everest Base Camp trekker
“What an epic journey, the most stunning country I have ever visited. Eight days of gruelling trekking made easy by the knowledge that our team raised in excess of $400,000 for Interplast” - Turia Pitt, on the Kokoda Challenge
“This has been an amazing adventure. I have made some wonderful friendships, enjoyed every second on the track, been inspired by our ANZAC heroes, my trek leader, my porters and my fellow trekkers. I have loved every moment. Thank you.” - Vickie Starcevich, Kokoda trekker
