Cherish Challenge Larapinta 2020

Welcome! Are you ready to escape the daily grind and go bush for women’s cancer? We’re taking the Cherish Challenge to the red centre of Australia by trekking the iconic Larapinta Trail in 2020.

The rewards for trekking over six days will be great. Imagine exploring this rugged terrain, sharing the Larapinta Trail with like-minded adventurers or your family, swimming in remote rivers, sleeping under a blanket of stars, and knowing you’ve done your bit to raise vital funds for much-needed research.

We need people like you to make a difference in the lives of women and girls with gynaecological cancer.

Each year in Australia, 6,000 women and girls are diagnosed with gynaecological cancer. One-third of these women will not do well. We urgently need to improve the odds of surviving gynaecological cancer, and the most effective way is through research. Our teams of researchers are ready. They are only limited by the funds available.

How will your fundraising help?

You’ll be helping the 6,000 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.”
