In November, Ms Moulden will be part of a group of Australians taking the trek in the Lares Valley that ends at the famous Machu Picchu high in the Andes mountain range.

‘I think I will need to pinch myself when I am standing above the clouds gazing over the lost city of the Incas; it’s going to be amazing,’ she said.

Ms Moulden and the group want to raise $150,000 for the helpline before departing. There will be a fundraiser for the trek in Rockingham.

The helpline counsels children who are having problems at home or school or dealing with serious issues like bullying, mental health, abuse or suicidal thoughts over the telephone, the internet and emails .

‘I am so please to be doing something for those children and love the fact that is it a group of Aussies coming together to take on this challenge,’ Ms Moulden said.

‘I hope I can make a difference to Australian kids, through Kids Helpline, so they will grow up strong and make their own difference in the world.’

The fundraiser is this Sunday June 23 from 2pm to 6pm at Bar Indigo Rockingham. Tickets $15. Entertainment, doors prizes and raffle. To donate visit kidshelplineperu.com.au/MouldenDee.
