Cherish Challenge – Kimberley 2022

In July 2022, fourteen Cherish Challenge champions from across Australia, are grabbing their sense of adventure and purpose and have committed to the Cherish Challenge Kimberley 2022.

They’re taking on a guided, pack-free & wilderness walking experience discovering the remote regions & magnificent scenery of the Kimberley region, raising funds for research and awareness about gynaecological cancer.

We reached out to this year’s Larapinta trekkers to extend them an invite first, and the 2022 trek is already fully booked! If you are keen to join our Cherish Challenge in Kimberley next year and willing to raise $3,500 for gynaecological cancer research, then add your name to the Kimberley waiting list by contacting us here. The more people on our waiting list, the greater chance we have of securing a second Kimberley trek. Check out all the amazing Kimberley locations included in the itinerary here.

We’ll be walking with trek company Life’s an Adventure.  Highlights of this adventure include fabulous Kimberley walking adventures to El Questro Gorge, Amalia Gorge, Moonshine Gorge Circuit and Pint Pot Bay Exploration walk; visiting the Bindoola Falls and rocky thermal pools at Zebedee Springs; swimming in the crystal clear pools at Emma Gorge; Ord River cruise and sunset cruise on Lake Argyle.

You can also support our trekkers by donating here. We need people like you to make a difference in the lives of women and girls with gynaecological cancer.

How will your donation help?

You’ll be helping the 6,500 women and girls diagnosed with gynaecological cancer each year and their families.

1. 100% of the money raised will support research that improves survival rates, treatments and ways to detect and prevent gynaecological cancer. There are successful research trials that have changed how doctors treat patients and which would never have started without fundraising support. Currently, research trials in uterine, ovarian and vulval cancer need funding. These projects will address impactful research problems, some of which have been unsolved for more than 30 years.

2. You and Cherish will raise awareness that saves lives. The more women know about this disease and its symptoms, the more likely they are to see their doctor if something’s not right. Awareness will help prevention.

3. You’ll show your support to women and girls across the world. Unlike breast cancer, gynaecological cancer is not well-known or understood. Often women diagnosed with it face unnecessary stigma and embarrassment. By fundraising, you’re saying to each of them, “I am with you.”


From the moment you register for a Cherish Challenge adventure until you return safely home, we will be with you every step of the way. We will offer support with advice, tools, resources and fundraising ideas to help you achieve your goals. We also know that if you plan ahead and break your fundraising down into manageable chunks, you’ll enjoy the rewards.


Together we are raising funds for Cherish’s nominated research partner – Queensland Centre for Gynaecological Research (QCGC Research). This is your opportunity to help the 6,500 women and girls diagnosed with gynaecological cancer in Australia each year. QCGC Research works to find less invasive diagnosis and treatment for these cherished women. Read more

  1. Start early. Kick off your fundraising now to raise $3,500.
  2. Mix it up. A variety of exercise is the best way to get fit, right? The same applies to fundraising. Check out the ideas below and mix up your team efforts.
  3. Keep the ‘fun’ in fundraising. Yes, we are raising funds for a very serious cause. But there’s still fun involved. Fun and humour are a great way to connect with others.
  4. Challenge yourself and get your family and friends to help you. Everyone hits a fundraising plateau or wall at some point. Talk to your family and friends for some motivation and encouragement and get their ideas on helping you raise these funds.
  5. Remember every dollar counts. Some of the most critical international research trials have begun with limited funding. We celebrate every donation – big and small – because it all makes a difference.


Here are some fundraising ideas from past events:

  1. Share a link to your fundraising page via your own social media accounts and ask your family and friends to support you by doing the same.
  2. Host morning or afternoon tea at your workplace for a gold coin donation and/or set up a swear jar for your co-workers.
  3. Ask if your employer will gift-match your donations to support your fundraising efforts.
  4. Organise a local community car wash or rope your local car wash in and for a percentage of the day’s proceeds, promote it to everyone you know.
  5. Hold a ‘guess the number of jellybeans or coffee beans in the jar’ competition.
  6. Ask for a donation in lieu of birthday or Christmas presents.
  7. Have a sausage sizzle or a lamington drive.
  8. Rope your training buddies in with a training session challenge for an extra fee.
  9. Offer a mini-goal if you achieve your target – for donations over $100 write the donor’s names on a flag and take a photo of the flag when you reach your destination
  10. Host a girls’ or boys’ night in – whether it’s for pampering or pizza (or both).

We’d love to see your fundraising efforts. You can share them with us via our Facebook and Twitter accounts and by hashtagging #CherishChallengeKimberley2022
