Gutsy Challenge: The Overland Track

The Gutsy Challenge went to Tasmania in 2018, with two teams taking on the wilderness. The first team, led by Professor Steve Ackland, took on a series of walks through the wilderness, facing snow and storms as they hiked over 60km.The second Gutsy Challenge Team took on Tasmania’s iconic Overland Track, carrying their own tents. Together, the two teams raised over $120,000 for GI cancer research.
