OUR TOP FUNDRAISERS
Welcome to Coastrek – Australia’s most iconic hiking challenge for women.
- Do you want to improve your fitness and feel better in body and mind?
- Want to have fun with friends while raising donations for a good cause?
You’ve come to the right place! When you take part in a charity walk, and fundraising activity, through Coastrek, you’ll be challenging yourself, having fun, smashing your personal boundaries and raising money for the Heart Foundation – all at the same time! Our fitness team trekking event keeps you healthy, whilst also being for a good cause!
Walking Events & Challenges for Charity Fundraising
We all know how important exercise is for heart health, physical and mental health. This is why all the money we raise from our charity hiking and walking events goes to Australia’s largest peak body funder of heart health research, the Heart Foundation.
Together, the Heart Foundation and Coastrek are embarking on an adventure to improve the lives of everyday Australians for the better, by taking a walk on the wild side to build healthier, happier hearts.
In the 13 years we’ve been running our charity events, we’ve raised over $45 million for good causes – all thanks to the amazing women - and men! - who have taken part in our fitness team trekking.
How it works
We organise charity walks in Sydney, Mornington Peninsula, Sunshine Coast, Fleurieu Peninsula and Margaret River taking you along some of Australia’s most spectacular stretches of coastline. You can choose to trek 20km, 30km, 35km, 45km, or 60km, to suit your level of fitness. This is an amazing way to see some of the most beautiful scenery in Australia while challenging yourself and raising money for the Heart Foundation.
All you have to do is:
- Get together in a team of 4 people
- Pledge to fundraise $2,000 as a team
- Come up with creative and fun ideas for fundraising
- Do a charity walk with us!
It isn’t competitive – it’s all about challenging your own personal boundaries and getting fit and healthy in our fundraising walk. And with our 12-week training program, it’s easy to get fit and feel great! For those wanting to contribute more to the community also have the opportunity to volunteer with us. Some choose to take part in Coastrek as a running event, however, our hiking challenge is a fundraising event that has no boundaries, so you can walk, jog, run or even dance so long as you are challenging yourself and having fun!
