Hike for Homeless Youth 2024

The Hike for Homeless Youth Journey

Property and construction leaders are putting on their hiking boots and tackling Queensland’s scenic rim walk to raise funds for homeless youth.

The 2024 Hike for Homeless Youth will see intrepid industry leaders take on two challenging mountains in Queensland’s Scenic Rim on April 19-20. Hikers will fundraise for homeless building projects like Haven House Kingaroy with South Burnett CTC – transitional housing for at-risk young people in Queensland’s Kingaroy area and the Logan Hub with Lady Musgrave Trust, offering transitional housing for vulnerable young mothers and their children in Logan.

“We are so grateful to have these leaders step up for our mission, because every night nearly 10,000 young Queenslanders do not have safe places to lay their heads,” says the Foundation’s QLD State Manager Antoinette Rusby-Perera.

“Their experiences, at their young vulnerable ages, will have lasting effects on the rest of their lives. In 2023, property leaders from Sydney and Melbourne took on a similar challenge and raised over $300K, which was an outstanding result. The property and construction community are committed to giving young people who are homeless, or at risk of being homeless brighter futures.”
