The trek was amazing! Truly life changing. A great group of people. An experience I will cherish for life. The solitude is so good for the soul.

— Lauren, Tasmania Trek 2018

Did you know more Australians die from upper gastrointestinal cancers each year than breast and prostate cancers combined? When someone is diagnosed with one of these cancers, their chance of being alive five years later is less than 20%.

Upper gastrointestinal cancers have some of the lowest survival rates of all cancers, yet they receive among the lowest amounts of funding and support. Trek for Hope 2021 is your chance to make a difference by helping Pancare Foundation improve survival rates and build support for Australians living with these forgotten cancers.

Over five days, you’ll trek a variety of challenging yet scenic trails, exploring the most remarkable parts of Tasmania’s iconic Cradle Mountain. Together with your fellow teammates, you will discover this breathtaking region of Australia to help people living with upper gastrointestinal cancers receive the support and treatment they need.

Though the sights you’ll see will no doubt be a highlight of this adventure, the best part will be the sense of accomplishment knowing you have helped Pancare ensure Australians impacted by these cancers are no longer forgotten.

When you join Trek for Hope 2021, you’ll be supporting Pancare Foundation to fulfill their vision of a world free from upper gastrointestinal cancers. 

All of the funds raised from this challenge will support Pancare’s partnership with the Upper GI Cancer Registry (UGICR) to improve outcomes for Australians facing pancreatic, stomach, liver, biliary and oesophageal cancers. This will help the UGICR to grow the pancreatic cancer arm of their program and formally establish the oesophageal and stomach cancer arms of the registry. Your hard-earned fundraising efforts will accelerate change, promote greater awareness and support cutting edge research that will transform and save lives.

Your fundraising efforts will have an incredible impact. For instance:

  • $200 will fund one day of research
  • $400 will fund two days of research
  • $1,000 will fund one week of research

How challenging is this adventure?

The Cradle Mountain trek is ranked 3/5. While no extensive trekking experience is required prior to registering, our adventures are designed for people who are relatively fit and willing to train. The trek is a physical challenge, and the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy the experience. 

You can expect the days to vary from easy exploration walks to day-long hikes over rough terrain. You should be able to walk comfortably for 6–8 hours over consecutive days. 

You will be well supported on the adventure, with the guides and your team all cheering you on. You are free to move at your own pace and we will take frequent breaks.

How do I fundraise?

Never fundraised before? Not sure where to start? No worries, we don’t expect you to do it alone. You will have regular support from the Inspired Adventures fundraising team, who will help you make a fundraising plan to meet your target. Alongside personalised coaching, we will also send you lots of ideas and resources on how to fundraise. From online fundraising to trivia nights, to bake sales and out-of-the-box ideas, we have years and years of tried and tested tips to make your fundraising a success.

Who will I be travelling with?

We believe small group travel is better for the planet, and better for you. Our adventures usually have 10 – 20 people aged from 18 to 90+ (younger ages considered on request). You can be sure that you have all come together with the shared purpose of making a difference to others and having the adventure of a lifetime.

The group will be led by a local tour guide with expert knowledge of the region. Many groups will also be accompanied by an Inspired Adventures team leader or doctor to support and motivate the team.

Where applicable, a charity representative may also join the team. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about your chosen charity and their work.

We understand the dilemma of making travel plans when the world feels unpredictable right now. You can still register for an Inspired Adventure in complete confidence, because we promise to look after you should COVID-19 travel bans affect your plans.

If COVID-19 travel bans mean your Inspired Adventure cannot go ahead as scheduled, we will endeavour to reschedule the departure to a later date to allow you still to travel as planned.
