‘Challenge accepted’ – 2016 QAHS Scrambled Legs team

2016 GUSEC in trainingThe Kokoda Youth Foundation is a registered charity that seeks to change the lives of at-risk Australian youths through a range of innovative programs that develop both character and skills. QAHS has been a staunch supporter of this charity, and is this year again providing a team to complete the challenge and raise money for this worthwhile cause. As with previous years, this year’s team has committed to the 96km “Stan Bisset Cup” which requires raising a minimum of $650 to support the Kokoda Youth Foundation. The 2016 team (pictured L-R), comprising Aly Debevec-Kruse, Ray Feng, Sean Ciancio Gayler, and Thomas Sheppard, is being led by Mr Ryschka  and is assisted by an extensive support crew comprising QAHS students and parents/caregivers. The team has been in training since early March. In addition to the weekly gym sessions designed by Ms DeVorms (QAHS Gym Supervisor) the team has already completed six hikes ranging in distance from 7km to 30km.
