Former Israeli commando Jarryd Rubinstein is gearing up to lead Patrick Cosgrove and Oliver Lavers on the Kokoda Track to raise money for cancer.

The Kokoda squad

The three friends are raising funds for the Wolfy Foundation named after David Wolf who died in 2013 after losing a battle with brain cancer. He was 23.

The trio is planning to complete the 96km “trek” through the dense jungle of PNG in just four days rather than the usual 10.

David Wolf died of brain cancer at the age of 23 in 2013.

Not only that, rather than having porters take their luggage, the lads will be carrying their own 15kg packs. Jarryd Rubinstein told J-Wire: “Standard treks are 10-12 days with porters.

We will be attempting in four days with no porters / carrying 15 kg packs. I served in an elite commando unit in the IDF and will be leading the trek with only a satellite phone and a guide.”

Ahead of this gruelling trek, the group has already raised $25,000.
