Trek for Hope – Cradle Mountain 2021
Join Pancare Foundation as we Trek for Hope Cradle Mountain in 2021 to support vital research and raise greater awareness for Australians impacted by upper gastrointestinal cancer.
Spend five days trekking the spectacular surrounds of Tasmania’s iconic Cradle Mountain on this once in a lifetime adventure. Together with a team of like-minded adventurers and supporters of Pancare, you’ll be amazed by a variety of trails, a mix of steep inclines and steady descents. From the jagged peak of Cradle Mountain to its surrounding glacial lakes and temperate rainforests, the Tasmanian wilderness area is nothing short of breathtaking. Wombats, Tasmanian Devils, and other native wildlife roam the area freely, providing the chance for an unforgettable encounter.
And the best part? As you discover this breathtaking wilderness, be rewarded knowing you are supporting Pancare’s mission to accelerate survival rates and support for Australians diagnosed with upper gastrointestinal cancers. Your commitment to this adventure will help support patients and their families on their journey through diagnosis to treatment and beyond.
• Trek the picturesque surrounds of Cradle Mountain, one of Australia’s premier walking destinations.
• Discover the beauty of Tasmania’s wilderness first-hand: dramatic highland views and waterfall cascades, stretches of temperate rainforest and glacial lakes.
• Raise crucial funds for Pancare Foundation as they work towards improving survival rates for those affected by upper gastrointestinal cancers.
• Make life-long friends with your fellow teammates as you help Pancare ensure people living with upper gastrointestinal cancers are no longer forgotten.
The difference you’ll make.
Out of all the major cancers, upper gastrointestinal cancers, including pancreatic, liver, stomach, biliary and oesophageal cancers, have some of the lowest survival rates and collectively represent a leading cause of cancer death in society.
In fact, over the past 10 years alone, more than 100,000 Australians have been diagnosed, with more than 75,000 losing their life as a result – thousands more than the mortality of breast and prostate cancer combined.
Yet, they receive very little attention or attract funding to support vital research or enhance patient outcomes. We’re on a mission to change that.
By joining this adventure, you’ll be supporting the Pancare Foundation to accelerate change for vital support services and research for upper gastrointestinal cancers. All funds raised on this adventure will enable Pancare to offer dedicated support services for patients and their families through our PanSupport program as well as partner with world-class research institutions to accelerate advancement in early detection, new treatments, enhanced patient care and clinical trials. Your hard-earned fundraising efforts have the power to transform and save lives.
