Kitesurfing the Torres Straight

Donate & share to show your support

On 12 July we are attempting the hardest thing we’ve ever done in our lives

Our team are kitesurfing across the Torres Strait (the body of water between Queensland and Papua New Guinea) – a world first – to raise $100,000 for McGrath Foundation

We will kitesurf all day, every day, for five days sleeping on uninhabited islands

Every member of the team will attempt this individually - this is NOT a relay! There will be attrition and some people won't make it. Success here is as many people as possible making the distance

100% of donations towards our $100k target go to the McGrath Foundation

MCGRATH FOUNDATION

As you know McGrath provides breast cancer care nurses, and in the Torres (which has the highest incidence of breast cancer in Australia) McGrath is also providing a scholarship for a local to become a care nurse. All of our team - as would many of you - have family members affected by breast cancer – and McGrath does an amazing job helping at a very difficult time.
