#Trek4Shelter

Challenge yourself to do something amazing for families in need

Step up to the challenge


Are you ready to go further to shelter families around the world after disaster in 2021?

Through our Trek 4 Shelter campaign, our goal is to raise $250,000 across five, once-in-a-lifetime adventures.

This amount is enough to provide 1,000 families with essential shelter aid, including our ShelterKits, solar lights, water filters and mosquito nets — life-changing, life-saving aid that will help disaster-affected communities to begin the slow process of recovery.

We’re asking you to help us continue our efforts by joining one of our Trek 4 Shelter adventures today!

When you sign up, you’ll join a team of other passionate ShelterBox supporters who will trek with you and we’ll give you all the guidance you’ll need to start your fundraising journey.

Every dollar you raise through this challenge will help ShelterBox create a world where no family goes without shelter after disaster.

ShelterBox Kokoda Trek — April 2022


Join us on the Kokoda Trail in 2022 for an epic adventure like no other.

The Kokoda Track was the scene of bitter fighting when the Australian Army fought to defend Port Moresby from advancing Japanese forces in 1942. Today, walking that same track has become an iconic pilgrimage for those wanting to honour the ANZAC spirit. The ShelterBox Kokoda Challenge will take place over April 2020 as a special commemoration of the historic events.

On this adventure, you’ll lace up your boots to trek alongside ShelterBox Australia supporters to raise funds that will help supply disaster relief shelters to people in need.
