Mates4Mates conducts holistic rehabilitation programs designed to push participants physically and psychologically in positive environments. Our challenges are difficult but realistic. They provide participants with a goal to work towards and a reason to get out of bed in the morning. They build motivation, teamwork and trust and have a profound effect on all participants.

Past Mates4Mates Rehabilitation Adventure Challenges have included activities like trekking Kokoda, sailing in the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race and riding through the Snowy Mountains on horseback.

These challenges have a strong focus on rehabilitation. It is by facing a safe level of physical or psychological stress, and being pushed outside of their comfort zone, that participants regain lost confidence and self-worth.

Your support is much appreciated and the money raised will “Pay It Forward” to give the next group of injured Defence Force Mates the chance to participate in these amazing opportunities.

The fundraising efforts of Mates on previous activities are what have allowed Mates4Mates to continue to provide these rewarding Challenges.



Mates4Mates also has seperate Everyday Hero campaigns for the Equine Therapy program and the Kokoda Trek!
