As an attendee, you'll register a team of friends, or register as an individual and be allocated a team.

Dementia Australia represents the 436,366 Australians living with dementia
and the almost 1.5 million Australians involved in their care. THE NEW VOICE OF ALZHEIMER’S AUSTRALIA We are proud to officially announce the launch of Dementia Australia, a unified, national peak body for people, of all ages, living with all forms of dementia, their families and carers.
"I was very impressed with the way the event was managed, I can only describe it as thoroughly professional on every level, and the high standard of medical support was also very reassuring.
Personally this was a huge challenge for myself – without question the hardest physical challenge I have undertaken since leaving school many many years ago!
I have no doubt that I would not have made it without the pre-trek training walks, so thanks for inviting us along to those and for your support in getting me up and down those hills around Mt Cootha.
Whilst I am sore today, it was great to achieve something that personally seemed very daunting a few short weeks ago.
I will be sure to put a team forward next year!"
