Join the PanKind Trek for Research Larapinta Challenge and help PanKind increase survival rates and quality of life for people impacted by pancreatic cancer.

On this once-in-a-lifetime adventure, you’ll trek through the Australian outback on one of the most spectacular walking tracks in the world—the Larapinta Trail. 

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. Over 5 days, you will journey along the most spectacular and rewarding sections of the trail, trekking over 60 kilometres. You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and explore the beautiful mountains, valleys, rivers and the dramatic desert landscapes of the Red Centre.

By day, you’ll trek through the ochre-landscapes of the outback, witnessing the sacred sites of the Arrernte people and by night you’ll camp under the stars, falling asleep to the sounds of native wildlife.

Pancreatic cancer is predicted to become the third biggest cancer killer in Australia in 2021. At present, the five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is just 10.7%.

Medical research is the single most important factor influencing patient survival, which is why our goal is to invest in ground-breaking research that will improve outcomes for those living with a pancreatic cancer diagnosis.

The funds raised on the Larapinta Challenge will be invested into world-class medical research that will improve survival for people affected by pancreatic cancer.
