Turia's Kokoda Trek 2016

Story

Hi there,
 
My name is Turia Pitt and in September 2011, I was burned to 65% of my body during the Kimberley Ultra-marathon.  

It has been a long, cruel journey to get to where I am now, but I consider myself lucky. We live in one of the best countries in the world, and our standards of medical care are extraordinarily high… It’s something we think little about and often take for granted until we really need it. 

My reconstructive surgeon, Professor Peter Haertsch, has volunteered for Interplast every single year for the past two decades! To me, the Interplast volunteers are miracle workers - they donate their time and expertise to people who really need it in developing countries.

That’s why, in 2016, I will be trekking the Kokoda Trail to raise vital funds for Interplast. All the money we raise will go towards the work of this incredible organisation, and help people all over the Asia Pacific region to rebuild their lives.

 

With our support, Interplast's teams of volunteer plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and allied health professionals can continue to provide free surgical treatment to patients living with treatable disabilities such as cleft lip and palate, burn scars and severe hand injuries. The funds I raise as part of this incredible adventure will also enable Interplast to train the next generation of surgical leaders in the countries in which they work. Through education, training and mentoring programs we empower local medical personnel to perform life-saving procedures independently.
