More than Seven Years of Adventures

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

In 2023 we will be travelling much closer to home in the Blue Mountains and New Zealand!

Congratulations to our 2022 Gutsy trekkers! With 43 participants and three incredible team leaders, we raised over $140,000 to contribute towards the 2022 Innovation 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 in the community, that we are able to continue our work into GI cancer research.
