“The most humbling and emotional time of my life with a group of people who share a common bond and believe in the future.”

— Trevor Neil King, Trek4BrainCancer Larapinta 2019

Each year about 1,700 Australians are diagnosed with brain cancer, but there’s a survival rate of just 22 per cent. The Cure Brain Cancer Foundation believes that’s just not good enough and has set itself a mission to raise that rate to at least 50 percent in 10 years. But what that takes is funds: for research, of course, but also for programs that improve the outcomes for those diagnosed with the disease.

When you trek Cradle Mountain, part of the Tasmanian World Heritage Wilderness Area, for Trek4BrainCancer Tassie 2022 you’ll be exploring a region where ancient pines fringe glacial lakes and the landscape transforms from temperate rainforest to alpine heath. Chances are you’ll spot quolls and echidnas, maybe even a Tasmanian devil, as you hike. 

And while you’re conquering mountain peaks on an adventure you’ll never forget, you’ll also be raising vital funds for the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation as it supports world-class brain cancer research and invests in projects to help people living with brain cancer.

When you take on this Cradle Mountain challenge you’ll help us invest in research and treatments that will truly make a difference for people living with brain cancer, now and in the future. We fund world-class brain cancer research, and recently have provided financial support to projects that help kids with the disease. Our Innovation Programs are tailored to identify new drugs and better understand the biology of tumours in order to save lives and improve quality of life for people suffering from brain cancer.

The funds you raise will go directly towards this research, much of which includes pivotal brain cancer trials that will save lives. By taking on this challenge and fundraising for the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation, you’re helping to rapidly increase brain cancer survival and improve quality of life for people impacted by the disease.

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.

Inspired Adventures follows the lead of the relevant government body as it pertains to COVID-19 vaccination requirements. It is your responsibility to ensure you are aware of requirements for travel from your departure state and arrival point, as well as any layover locations and the requirements of the airline you are travelling with.
