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.
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.”
