In 2022 emergency service workers trekked Side-by-Side along the notorious and historically significant Kokoda Track to raise awareness of the need to support the mental health and wellbeing of Victoria’s emergency service workers. The Kokoda Trek raised more than $30,000 for the Emergency Services Foundation.

In 2023, Tony’s Trek - One Step at a Time covered 1,500km across the areas impacted by the 2019-20 Victorian Bushfires raising $209,000.

In 2024 we will continue the journey together with Tony’s Trek Side-by-Side, and we are aiming high by heading to Everest Base Camp via Gokyo Lakes in the magnificent Sagarmatha National Park, Nepal.

From 8 March 2024 emergency service personnel, family, and friends will embark on a 19-day trek, with the amazing crew from No Roads Expeditions. Raising awareness and funds for much needed mental health prevention and early intervention programs for our emergency services workers.

Mental health challenges can often seem like a mountain, but Side-by-Side we can climb mountains together.

Symbolically, Tony’s Trek Side-by-Side represents how we work – Emergency Services, Side-by-Side, when it counts, and in it together for the greater good.

Please show your support for the brave and dedicated few that will undertake the trek as well as your support for the work of the Emergency Services Foundaiton by donating now.
