Corey's inspirations

Who is someone that inspires you?

My younger brother Jake.

Why do you want to complete the Kokoda Trek?

Completing the trek is something I always wanted to do. My younger brother Jake passed away early 2022 and I've made it my mission to say yes to every opportunity for adventure that comes my way. As he missed out on a lot of adventure being so young.

What do you hope to get out of completing the trek?

Adventure and stories to tell my friends and family. To deal with my grief of loss, to achieve such a mental and physical challenge would make myself proud of what I can achieve.
