In May 2016, simPRO AU General Manager Mark Alfred will trek 250km across the Simpson Desert to help Youngcare keep young Australians out of aged care.

Mark has volunteered to take part in the Youngcare Simpson Desert Challenge 2016, but he needs support to reach his $35,000 goal for Youngcare’s cause. Find out more and donate on Mark’s official page.

YoungCare's Simpson Desert Challenge
In his day job, Mark runs the Australian arm of simPRO Software. He signed up for the Challenge when the simPRO Foundation, which wanted to help Youngcare achieve its goals, asked if he could help. “The simPRO Foundation showed me the amazing work Youngcare is doing to help young people with high care needs. After hearing how isolated young people must feel, living in aged care facilities that aren’t designed for them, I had to get involved,” Mark said. Mark is now training hard to be able to make it through the gruelling 250km desert trek.

“simPRO is all about helping people take back control of their businesses and their lives. The trek is something I can do to help these young Aussies live the young life they deserve.”
