Our Goal

$230,000

Join us on the adventure of a lifetime through the iconic ancient landscapes of Central Australia and raise funds to help young people facing homelessness in the Northern Territory.

How you can help

Every step you take and every dollar you raise on our Larapinta Trail adventure will directly help vulnerable young people through our brand new mobile outreach service Missionbeat NT.

You’ll be supporting young people at risk of or experiencing homelessness, disengagement and mental health issues in some of the most disadvantaged communities in the country.

The money you raise will ensure these young people have immediate help in times of crisis, and access to ongoing support through our existing services, helping them take positive steps towards lives of independence.
