This trek is not for the faint hearted, but Fiona is up for the challenge. As the CEO of Mend Services, Fiona knows too well the hardships facing the construction industry.
who served in Papua New Guinea during 1942-43.
Fiona has the will and determination to endure the adversities as experienced by her grandfather and many of our Australian servicemen who served in Papua New Guinea during this time. For much of 1942 and 1943, some 75 years ago a staggering 5,866 Australians lost their lives, while 29,100 were evacuated, injured or were taken ill. Fiona will be swapping her heels for hiking boots to walk through mud, to deal with leeches, continuous rain, mosquitoes, crossing dangerous creeks and struggling through tough terrain. Fiona will take that all and more in her stride, because she has inherited her grandfather’s stoicism and courage, and she will proudly wear her grandfather’s medals on the trek in his honour.
The Master Builders Association NSW will be supporting Fiona’s efforts for this worthy cause and we hope you will too. Mend Services will be seeking corporate sponsorship and fundraising opportunities.
Please support Fiona
