Whether it's on the football field or trekking the Great Wall of China, the Bairds never shy away from a challenge.
Their next pursuit will see Julie and her sons Adam and Travis embark on the Kokoda Track, to raise money for MND Victoria to support families impacted by motor neurone disease, while also retracing through Baird family history.
Two members of the Baird Family, Harold and Bill, fought on the track during WWII.
Harold was wounded and sent back to Australia, however, Bill was unfortunately killed.
"Within our family history we have these letters from the war which have details on where they landed, where they were and all sorts of other things," Julie said.
"Walking the Kokoda Track has always been something both myself and the boys have wanted to do, especially for them because of the Baird history."
In the past few years Julie has devoted her time to raising money for charities, including walking the Great Wall of China for leukemia research and most recently other fundraising activities for motor neurone disease research.
This time, the trek across the Kokoda Track will see all money raised being used to support families who have been impacted by MND.
The challenges will come in two sizes, the physical side of things on the eight-day trek where some days they will be walking non-stop for up to eight hours within a larger guided group.
There is also the mental challenge, maintaining focus and motivation while battling extreme humidity and weather conditions.
The Baird brothers Travis and Adam might be known for their athletic talent on the football field, but they both agree the mental challenge will be tough.
"The high humidity and hot weather is sure to make for some sticky conditions that will start to play on our minds," Travis said.
"I've always been around team environments through playing football so I am looking forward to that aspect of walking with the group, it will bring out some great camaraderie."
"We're also doing this for a fantastic cause as Mum, Adam and I all know people who have died from MND."
Understanding more of the family's history will be another eye-opening experience for the brothers.
"It's certainly going to be interesting seeing how tough the conditions were which the soldiers had to deal with," Travis said.
Adam is also more than ready to take on the Kokoda Track.
"I've always wanted to do it to challenge myself and it's great that we are doing it together while also raising money for MND," Adam said.
The track is a single-file trail which runs through Papua New Guinea and is the location of battles between primarily Australians and the Japanese during WWII.
The Baird's plan is to take on Kokoda around May next year and will start training soon.
