$1,000 Goal

We're hiking the ~140km Kokoda Trail in the jungles of Papua New Guinea over 8 days in early July. This is likely the hardest thing we have ever done, but will no doubt will also be one of the most rewarding. As added incentive, we are hoping to raise money for the wonderful RCD Foundation. The last twenty years has seen minimal progress for brain cancer diagnosis and treatments. Fundraising from our Trek will help fund the research to improve early detection, diagnosis and treatment options, including funding the AIM BRAIN Project and immunotherapy research. Brain cancer research is on the tipping point. We can all be part of making important breakthroughs happen. Our participation is something that we can do to support the science and in the meantime the patients. For all the people out there currently battling brain tumours and for those who couldn’t wait for research to progress any longer. We're doing this because we know we can find a way to make brain tumours go the way of the dinosaurs. Make a donation to our page and be part of making brains matter.
