About Kokoda Trail 2018

On the 3rd of October we will embark on a journey to remember. The Kokoda trail is not a walk in the park but we have decided to take the trail on all while raising money for the Reach Foundation. 

Our Team - Greg Stafford, Ray Hall, Mark Chaffey, Jagger Stafford, Chesne Stafford, Jon Hearn, Jarrad Asquith, Alex Turner, Lockie Hearn and Taylor Stafford. 

You may ask why we chose Reach? 

“Having played against Jim Stynes, I admired him for what he achieved both on and off the field. As ruck coach at Melbourne, I have an opportunity to continue his legacy in some small way. That is to help Melbourne’s ruckman be the best players they can be and raise money/awareness for Reach who help young people realise their own self-worth and potential. Having recently been on camp and seeing first-hand the positive effect Reach had on our players, I am even more determined to raise as much as I can.” Greg Stafford

“I am very excited to have the opportunity to be part of a group of great mates setting out to complete the Kokoda trek this October. It will no doubt be a difficult challenge but once completed an extremely fulfilling achievement that I will be forever proud of. To do this whilst raising money for the Reach Foundation makes it even more worthwhile and special.”Mark Chaffey    

“For me, it was my time at an AFL club that inspired me to get the most out of life and believe in myself. These are important life skills for all young people and I’m impressed by the power of Reach to deliver programs that help young people across Australia to build confidence and make positive choices. This is a great opportunity for our group to take on the challenge of walking the Kokoda Trail, to learn more about the importance of the Kokoda Trail Campaign to Australian history, all while fundraising for Reach to continue to deliver its valuable programs.”  Ray Hall

We also have two young people from the Reach Foundation joining us on this adventure - "After both participating on and running Reach programs we could not be more passionate about raising money to help grow more opportunities for young people to experience something greater. We will not only be raising money for Reach but also be proving that when young people put their mind to it, they can achieve anything they want. The Kokoda trail seems like a great step in that direction. Consider us both nervously excited for the adventure!" - Jarrad and Alex

We cannot achieve our goal without your support -  any contribution will help, either big or small. 

Thank you in advance!

About Reach


Being young is not without it's struggles. Today's world is pretty complex and young people can experience a bunch of challenges that adults might not be able to relate to. One of the biggest hurdles is just having the confidence and support to be who they want to be. 

There are currently over 4 million young people living in Australia, and Reach works with over 40,000 of them a year. We have over 250 of them working with us; designing and delivering workshops in schools and the community. Our workshops are 100% youth-led, from design to delivery, and the community we create out of these workshops is one that allows for deeper connection, a sense of belonging, and the dispelling of judgements. A preventative, instead if having a focus on symptoms in adult life.  


Generations of confident, self-aware and passionate young people shaping the world.
