Cherish Challenge - Larapinta 2021

$

We're trekking through Australia's beautiful red centre for women’s cancer!

We’re taking Cherish to the red centre of Australia by trekking the epic Larapinta Trail in 2021. Secure your place now, for the three or seven-day trek through Australia’s beautiful red centre - visit our website for further information.

The Larapinta Trail stretches along the backbone of the West MacDonnell Ranges, from the old Alice Springs Telegraph Station to the peak of Mount Sonder. By day, you’ll explore Australia’s desert landscapes and gain a deeper understanding of ancient Indigenous culture. By night, you’ll enjoy the warmth of campfire conversation, delicious food and the brilliance of star-studded outback skies.

At the moment these treks are open to the Cherish community only but will be opened to the general public eventually. Before that happens we’d love to fill them with Cherish supporters.

It’s not often in life we get the opportunity to do something extraordinary. This is one of those times. Please don’t let this opportunity pass you by. Join our Larapinta team today. You’ll find all the details on our website, or give us a call on 07 3346 5041.

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 donation 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.”
