Join the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s Outback Trek for Research and you can help work towards the goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
Help us work towards zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
Join the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s Outback Trek for Research in 2019 where you will walk the Larapinta Trail through the heart of Australia in an effort to raise funds for game-changing breast cancer research.
The Larapinta Trail is regarded as one of Australia’s premier walking tracks. From the old Alice Springs Telegraph Station to the peak of Mount Sonder, the trail stretches 223 kilometres along the backbone of the West MacDonnell Ranges.
As part of this incredible – yet challenging – adventure, you will stand on ancient escarpments and gaze out upon the ochre-coloured landscapes of Central Australia. You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and trek beside one of the world’s oldest river systems.
By day, you will challenge yourself as you trek across the Red Centre, experiencing the diversity of desert habitats and learn the unique history of Australia’s Indigenous peoples. At night, you will fall asleep to the sounds of native wildlife under a blanket of stars.
Breast cancer is currently the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia. Its incidence is at an all-time high, with eight women dying every single day from the disease. Research is the only way to learn more about how breast cancer grows & spreads – so that we can develop better diagnostic tools, treatments – and ultimately, save lives.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) has one determined goal: zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. It’s a goal that NBCF believes is achievable – with the help & support of people like you.
Thanks to breast cancer research, 5 year survival rates for breast cancer have improved from 76% to 90% in the last 20 years. But when breast cancer spreads to other parts of the body, those rates become alarmingly low – just 40%. Sufferer or carer, it’s a disease too many of us have to tolerate. And there is still so much work to be done.
Since its inception in 1994, NBCF has invested $149 million in 489 Australian breast cancer research projects – projects that are helping us detect tumours earlier, improve treatment outcomes, and save lives. Every dollar raised on this Outback Trek, will help NBCF move closer towards zero deaths. What we do today can change forever.
