News Flight Centre Crew Takes On CY2K
13 November 2015
In 2008, our clients at the Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG) founded the Flight Centre Foundation (FCF). FCF partners with a number of worthy organisations to give back to the community, and to provide a platform for the altruism they see within their organisation.
Working in partnership with the Kokoda Track Foundation (KTF), four employees from the FCTG undertook an epic challenge in October, 2015: the journey from Cape York to Kokoda, by kayak and foot, over only seven days.
KTF has made an ongoing commitment to aid free education, teachers and resources within Kokoda’s community. The team from Flight Centre set a goal to raise enough funds to aid a 40 week training program at Kokoda College for five new teachers. Completing this daunting physical feat speaks not only of exceptional endurance, but the immense goodwill at the core of the Flight Centre Foundation.
We were proud to attend the fundraising event recently held in Brisbane. Bizwear supported the CY2K initiative with a donation to provide training for one additional teacher for 6 months.
