Unite for Hope 2020

May 31

Event Navigation

May 31, 2020

While we’d normally be asking you to Walk for Hope with us at major capital city events, we now invite you to UNITE FOR HOPE with us across the nation in our online event that continues to inspire our community and create change for the cause.

Each week, 218 Australians are diagnosed with an upper GI cancer. With some of the lowest survival rates out of all the major cancers, Unite for Hope is about helping create greater awareness and action to fuel progress that improves outcomes.

HELP raise awareness, funds and spirits at this difficult time.

Choose an activity that inspires hope or brings joy – undertake your activity on SUNDAY 31 MAY from 8am – 8pm – participate in memory or in support of a loved one affected by an upper GI cancer and share these beautiful moments with our amazing community.

UNITE FOR HOPE – SUNDAY 31 MAY – ACROSS THE NATION!

Join us for a day of action as we unite to raise vital funds for Pancare Foundation.

We are thrilled that this can now be a national event, allowing us to unite in solidarity from Melbourne to Mackay, Perth to Port Macquarie, from driveways to backyards, from dining rooms to decks, get involved anywhere you can!

 

NEED HELP CHOOSING AN ACTIVITY?

There are countless activities you can undertake in isolation – if you are stuck for ideas we’ll be posting some of our top picks on Instagram and Facebook – we’d love to hear your ideas – in the meantime here are some of our favourites.

SET YOURSELF A PHYSICAL CHALLENGE:

  • Challenge yourself or members of your team to set a personal best for a 5km or 10km walk or run (remember to run with a maximum of 1 other person outside  – you can always get together online and compare your times!)
  • Set a challenge to see how many push-ups for Pancare you can do!
  • Sweat it out in the living room by doing back-to-back old school Jane Fonda work out videos on You Tube.
  • Go on a solo spin around the block, or if you’re more advanced, take top place as King/Queen of Mountain in your favourite Strava segment.

ENJOY A HOME-BASED ACTIVITY:

  • Cook a three-course meal of your loved ones’ all-time favourite recipes.
  • Have a family dance off to your favourite tunes – record it and share it with family and friends for a laugh.
  • Got a family favourite movie? Arrange for family and friends to watch the same movie at a designated time and enjoy a good laugh, or cry.

And importantly, don’t forget to tag us in these special moments!! @pancarefoundation #pancareuniteforhope .

Whatever you choose to do, know that others just like you are uniting across the nation to help raise awareness and funds for Australians impacted by upper GI cancers.

Announcements about the new-look event will be announced on our Pancare Walk for Hope website, and on the event’s Facebook and Instagram channels. We will also update this events page.

Let’s stay united, stay safe, and take care of one another.
