Join us on the Sanfilippo Hike For Hope in 2021 and help change the face of the future for children living with Sanfilippo Syndrome and their families.
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. Every step you take will bring us closer to enabling access to effective treatments and potentially improving the quality of life for children with Sanfilippo.
On this adventure, you will trek the legendary Larapinta Trail, 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. 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. Best of all, you will raise vital funds for new research into Sanfilippo Syndrome that has the potential to change lives today and in the future.
Sanfilippo is a type of childhood dementia and most patients never reach adulthood. But there is hope.
Researchers around the world are working hard to find effective treatments. In order to achieve our purpose to drive research for a world without Sanfilippo Syndrome, we have a robust funding program in place. The funds raised on the Hike For Hope 2021 will go towards vital research projects that show potential to halt disease progression; repair damage caused by the condition; or improve the quality of life for children suffering from Sanfilippo.
