More than Five Years of Adventures

Our Gutsy Challenge adventures have included climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in Africa, Mt Aconcagua in Argentina and New Zealand’s Southern Alps. They have also involved cycling through Cambodia, trekking Larapinta in Northern Territory, Cape to Cape in Western Australia and the Overland Track in Tasmania.

In 2021 we will be trekking much closer to home to Mt Kosciuszko in March and the Twelve Apostles in September.

By joining any Gutsy Challenge you join a small group of individuals all committed to supporting GI cancer research and seeing improvements in treatments for those diagnosed with a digestive cancer.

Congratulations to our Gutsy Challenge 2019 trekkers! With two great destinations, 16 participants and two incredible team leaders, we’ve raised over $151,000 to contribute towards our 2019 annual Innovation Fund grant.

The contributions made through the Gutsy Challenges are vital to our mission to translate bold new ideas into life-saving clinical trials that help patients as quickly as possible. It is thanks to the support of people like you and the community, that we are able to continue our work into GI cancer research.
