An empowering challenge event with a difference
The Krazy Kosci Klimb is one of Cerebral Palsy Alliance's most unique events, the focus is on challenging young people living with cerebral palsy or other disabilities to reach a goal they may never have believed they could.
The idea for this unique event came from Hannah Diviney, a teenager living with cerebral palsy who wanted to create an opportunity whereby she and other young people could benefit from the life changing rewards that challenge events can bring. With the assistance of her parents and family friend Mick Campbell, the idea for the Krazy Kosci Klimb was born.
The Krazy Kosci Klimb is all about teamwork
The Krazy Kosci Teams are a formidable force, they are focused and determined on ensuring their lead participant has fun and reaches the top of Mt Kosciuszko whilst also fundraising for a worthwhile cause.
Each team is sponsored by a corporate partner and each corporate partner will have four of their employees join us on the challenge. Together with the lead participant and their family (or close friends), everyone comes together to form one support team.
Conquering this challenge will see each team cover 18.4kms, starting from Charlotte Pass, and walking or wheeling your way along the summit track to the top of Mount Kosciuszko and then returning back to Charlotte Pass.
Taking on Mount Kosciuszko is part of the journey. Each team will work together to fundraise in the lead up to the event, encouraging family, friends, work colleagues and the local community to donate in support.
The funds raised from Krazy Kosci Klimb support the Accessible Gym and Sports Program at Cerebral Palsy Alliance, providing essential funding for qualified exercise physiologists and the purchase of specialised equipment that supports exercise and sporting programs for teenagers and adults with intellectual and physical disabilities.
