The Building Employees Redundancy Trust (BERT) has once again decided to support the MATES in Construction Kokoda Trek 2016.

BERT has been a strong supporter of the Kokoda Trek and has sent their own employees on the 2014 and 2015 treks.  They have raised significant funds and provided administrative support in the lead up to the trek 2016.  This year BERT will again be sending their own staff along with sponsoring four additional places on the trek.

Watch this space to find out who the lucky four people are that have won those places.

The trekkers from 2015 raised over $137,000 for MATES in Construction. This year we are hoping to reach the magical $150,000 mark! Funds raised will mean MATES in Construction can continue to work with the construction industry to reduce the prevalence of suicide in the industry. We can all make a difference, trekking Kokoda is an amazing way to do it.
