About Nathan Charles Kokoda Trek

As the only professional athlete playing a contact sport with cystic fibrosis (CF), I’ve faced my share of obstacles. But I never let it define me.
I now want to use my experiences to help others see what’s possible.

As you know, I am passionate about supporting CF research and raising funds for health and exercise initiatives that will improve the lives of people with CF.

My next challenge in July 2020 is to trek the Kokoda Trail - one of the world's most famous walks. The plan is to set out from Kokoda Station and walk to Ower's Corner (Japanese Advance). We will trek across the central spine of Papua New Guinea, visiting battle sites and gaining a first-hand appreciation of Papua New Guinea's rugged beauty.

Walking the Kokoda is an incredibly rewarding - even life changing - experience, but it is not for the faint of heart. Experience tell us that courageous acts like this are what it takes to really raise awareness and fund research. 

About Cystic Fibrosis Australia

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) primarily affects the lungs and digestive system because of a malfunction in the exocrine system, responsible for producing saliva, sweat, tears and mucus.

There is currently no cure. People with CF develop an abnormal amount of excessively thick and sticky mucus within the lungs, airways and the digestive system. The mucus causes impairment of the digestive functions of the pancreas and traps bacteria in the lungs resulting in recurrent infections which lead to irreversible damage. Lung failure is the major cause of death for someone with CF.

We advocate on behalf of our members to gain better access to services, obtain information or resources. On a larger scale we have been involved in several national campaigns to increase the rights of all people with cystic fibrosis.
