Do A Trek To Remember
Elite Executive Events is proud to support Dementia Australia to bring you the opportunity to challenge yourself (or your team) with a unique fundraising event.
Do A Trek To Remember will offer you and your friends the chance to test your fitness and enjoy the spirit of camaraderie whilst completing a 23.0km trek through the beautiful Mt Nebo landscape.
As an attendee, you'll register a team of friends, or register as an individual and be allocated a team.
Tickets are just $90 and include everything you need for a fun-packed day. After purchasing a ticket, you'll also be expected to raise a minimum of $90 to support Dementia Australia and their incredible work.
Upon finishing the event, you are also able to replenish your energy at our free participant light BBQ.
The event isn't designed to be a race, but is instead a physically testing, yet empowering journey.
Spots are limited, so don't miss out!

Hear What Pat Welsh Has To Say About The Event
Elite Executive Events and Queensland Parks & Wildlife Service staff welcome you to D’Aguilar National Park to partake in a one of a kind event - all while supporting a great cause.
Set on the 31st March 2019, Do A Trek To Remember will see teams of 2-6 complete a 23.0km course from Mt Nebo to Enoggera Reservoir (The Gap) through the D’Aguilar National Park.
As the event endorses teamwork, you're encouraged to register with a group of friends (2-6 people) to help you cross to the finish line. Individuals are also encouraged to enter, and will be partnered with other teams on the day.
The purpose of the event is to raise money and create awareness for the great work that Dementia Australia delivers to affected Australian communities and families.
The trek allows your team to select a starting time between 6am - 10:30am, where a bus will charter you to the top of the mountain. Thankfully, this means you'll enjoy being able to walk down the hill throughout the journey. All up, the 23.0km trek should take between 5 - 7 hours to complete.
The ticket cost of the event is $90.00 per person. This cost will include a bus charter from the meeting point to the trek beginning, access to our medical support team, light BBQ lunch, and of course, entry to the event itself.
Attendees will also be expected to raise a minimum of $90.00 per person to support the cause. Dementia Australia will, however, provide you with tips and tools to assist you on our Fundraising page. You will also be kept up to date with regular email ideas and suggestions as we source them to assist you as much as possible.
If you’re purchasing a ticket for a team, one team captain will be required to complete the registration and team payment in full.
Upon registering themselves, they’ll then be sent a link where the remaining team members can easily register at no cost.
Register yourself or a team.
If you’re registering a team - create a team name, then make the team payment in full.
After registering, you’ll receive an email with a link for your fellow team members to register their details. Their registration will bare no cost.
You’re all set, so start getting ready for the trek!

"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!"
