Amazing fundraising effort by PDQ’s Kokoda participants

September 1, 2017

A huge congratulations to Grace Thompson and Mitch Kruk, Paynter Dixon Queensland’s representatives for the 2017 Mate’s In Construction Kokoda Challenge.

This determined pair are leaving for PNG today, after months of training and outstanding fundraising initiatives.

Their incredible effort has definitely not gone unnoticed, successfully raising an astonishing $16,000 for Mates in Construction! A huge achievement.

Mates in Construction are an organisation dedicated to reducing the high level of suicide amongst Australian construction workers – a cause strongly supported by Grace, Mitch and Paynter Dixon Queensland.

Grace and Mitch would like to thank everyone who donated to this mission – subcontractors, consultants, suppliers, co-workers, family and friends – you have truly made their fundraising efforts a roaring success!
PDQ could not be more proud of Mitch and Grace – their determination and teamwork throughout their Kokoda preparation has been outstanding to see. We know this hard work will continue on throughout your trek, and we wish you all the best.
