Take a Gutsy Challenge
Get gutsy for gastro-intestinal (GI) cancer and take on a Gutsy Challenge.
Have some fun and raise much-needed funds for vital research to find a cure for Australians diagnosed with a digestive cancer – this includes oesophageal, stomach, pancreatic, gallbladder, liver, bowel and colorectal cancers.
Participate in a fun run, walk, eat healthy, swim or ride a bike, hold an auction or give up a vice for as long as you can: whatever is ‘GUTSY’ and suits you.
You can take the Gutsy Challenge by yourself or, better still, engage with your friends, family, or work colleagues to help the GI Cancer Institute raise funds.

Our Gutsy Challenge Supports the Innovation Fund Grant
All money raised supports research in to gastro-intestinal (GI) cancer – facilitating the development of much needed improved treatments for the 28,900+ Australians diagnosed every year.
With an overall survival rate of just over 50% – and as low as 9% for pancreatic cancer – GI cancers kill more Australians everyday than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. By participating in the Gutsy Challenge you are helping the GI Cancer Institute to raise essential funds for research to improve these survival rates and the quality of life for people diagnosed with GI cancer.
