Our Team

Peter Arthur

Peter has been involved in fundraising for the past 12 years and always with Karen by his side. "It gives us great pleasure knowing that we are making a difference to people's lives" Peter said.

The highlights of my life would be my 5 children and holding the record for the fastest trip ever by 4WD over this great country. From Byron Bay to Steep Point and returning in only 6 days.

Karen Arthur

Hi my name is Karen. I am a nurse based in Lismore, and I always enjoy the fundraising challengers that Pete and I get involved with. Over the past 12 years I have been involved with Kidney Health Australia, Angel Flight, Rural fire Service, OURKIDS and many smaller groups. Whether it's helping people in the hospital or doing adventurous fundraising activities, there is always a feeling of achievement for me.

Ben Graydon

Ben is part of the Support Team. Ben has a wife Bronwen and two sons, Eric and Will. Ben works at Southern Cross University as Campus Services and Systems Supervisor. Ben's been riding for over 25 years and loves bikes and 4WD'ing. Having grown up in Lismore and now with children of his own, Ben was thrilled to be a part of the fundraising team.

"Both of my children have now utilised equipment provided by Our Kids and I can't think of a better reason than that to be involved in something as important as this", Ben said.

Bronwen Graydon

Bronwen works at Southern Cross University in Lismore and is also part of the support team.

"It's fantastic to be heading off with the family for outback adventures with Trek Quest. To be able to raise funds for Our Kids and the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter along the way makes it even more special" .

The Graydon's has been involved for many years in raising funds for the Leukaemia Foundation. Being a local family, they can appreciate the difference that the donations can make to other families living in the area. By supporting Trek Quest, their sons Eric and Will can also get involved. Eric has travelled on each adventure since he was 2 years old, and Will each adventure since he was born.
