On an unusually chilly morning in Queensland, a number of avid golfers braved the cold to play golf in the name of suicide prevention.

This the second year running of the BERT Kokoda Golf Day saw 25 golf teams enjoy a round of golf and each other’s company all in the name of suicide prevention.

Proceeds from the day will be distributed amongst the BERT Kokoda Trekkers.

We would like to thank the sponsors of the day – BUSSQ, Plumbers Union, Slater & Gordon, CBUS, Cogent Scaffolding, Mayford Contracting, PFG Financial Services, RBC Business Solutions, CIP for making the day such a success.

This year between 40 and 50 trekkers will take on the Kokoda Trek to raise funds for MATES in Construction and awareness of suicide prevention in the construction industry.

It’s amazing that by playing golf you can help to save lives.
