“Mission complete”.

That was the message from Campbelltown Chamber of Commerce president Glenn Creecy from the top of Mount Kosciuszko this afternoon.

Mr Creecy, his wife Emily and their three children Charlotte, 10, Matthew, 12, and Joshua 13, trekked 23 kilometres up and down Australia’s highest mountain today – all in the name of charity.

The journey took eight-and-a-half hours and conditions were challenging to say the least.

“I couldn’t be prouder of my beautiful family,” Mr Creecy said.

“Twenty-three kilometres with over 100 knot winds and we hiked from Charlotte’s Pass to the summit and back.”

The quintet will enjoy a warm drink tonight to thaw out after the walk, which aimed to raise money for the Oesophageal Cancer Awareness Group Inc (OCAGI) – a charity started by Macquarie Fields resident Polly Grundy.

Time to celebrate.
