“This incredible event demands the absolute best from its participants,” says Adrian Reed, Founder & Director, Reed & Co. Estate Agents. “It takes courage to strive for greatness, to make a difference in the lives of children in hospitals, and to push ourselves when it truly matters. I am constantly amazed by the motivated and inspiring team at Reed & Co., who share a common goal of making a lasting impact. It is a dream come true for me, and I couldnít be prouder of their achievements.”

Reed & Co. Estate Agents are overwhelmed by the response and the generosity of the Noosa community. Since opening in 2018, Reed & Co. Estate Agents in collaboration with the Loyal Foundation, and the Humpty Dumpty Foundation, have now raised $1,072,798 and purchased 85 pieces of life-saving paediatric medical equipment for our local and regional hospitals.

Kicking the day off at 4:30am, two buses kindly donated by the Good Shepherd Lutheran College transported climbers from the Reed & Co. office to Wild Horse Mountain in the Beerburrum State Forest for the first climb of the day. The journey continued with a steep calf-burning climb to the peak of Mount Beerburrum. Participants powered through the clouds to the top of Peak 3, Mount Ngungun, where they were rewarded with incredible views of the Glasshouse Mountains.

Now at the halfway point, participants had the chance to refuel with barista made coffee kindly donated by the team at Shine Social and Communities, injecting a pep into their step to conquer the rest of the challenge. With spirits high and determination strong, participants and support crews were ready for the 40-minute bus ride north to tackle the fourth peak, Mount Ninderry. The sun came out for the climb up Mount Coolum, where participants powered up and down knowing there was only one peak left to climb. With an elevation of 439m, the highest peak of the day, Mount Cooroora awaited.

As competitors hopped off the bus, the energy was contagious. As challenging as the day had been, the true motivation came from knowing that the pain and challenge endured faced pale in comparison to those of the children and families who will benefit from the equipment we are raising money to purchase.

Prior to the climb, Adrian Reed announced the competition for King and Queen of Mount Cooroora, to challenge the elite on another level. Both Marat Roche & Roxanne Shahtahmasebi were crowned King and Queen of Mount Cooroora, crossing the finish line at exactly same time in a remarkable 31 minutes.

The day concluded at Pomona Distilling Co. with some well-deserved celebratory drinks, honouring not only the incredible physical feat of conquering 6 Peaks but also the camaraderie and fundraising achievements of the day. The day wouldnít have been possible without the support of our sponsors, Satori Advisory & Judo Bank, supporting partners, VitHitBounce Foods & TH7 Bodylabs Noosa and the incredible bus drivers of Good Shepherd Lutheran College, Ivan and Lea.

Why do we do it? Because it saves lives. If we don’t do it, nobody does it. If we don’t do it, the hospitals will go without.

6 Peaks in 1 Day donation page will be open until 5pm Monday 13th May.
