Thank you to our amazing 2021 Midnight to Dawn ANZAC Service Trekkers for making this event a huge success!
To All Midnight to Dawn Anzac Service trekkers,
You more than satisfied my expectations about the Australian Anzac community spirit and your attention to our on-trek instruction details were commendable, and of course your consistent good humour throughout the night. Your own senses and commitment to the overall group safety and enjoyment were not unnoticed. Your passions and knowledge and insights about this once in a lifetime experience teaches all of us that without community spirit there nothing left.
How kind you all have been with how respectful and sensitive you were to our fund-raising needs and I hope all of your family and friends who supported you were proud of your extraordinary effort in completing a tough trek like we did on the early hours of Anzac day 2021, It is your generosity of spirit which will make our community adventure live forever in these great memories.

Lauren and Dominic
As the sun rose on 25 April 1915, Australian and New Zealand soldiers rowed towards the shores of Gallipoli and into history itself.
Every year since, as the sun rises, Australians gather across the nation to remember their legacy, and the legacy of all those who have followed in their footsteps.
