The Walk

Walking 35 kilometres is tough.
Raising $1000 is tough.
Seeing loved ones suffer is tough.
Cancer is really tough.
But we’re tougher.

We will walk in unity and send a message to the cancers that rob us of our daughters, sisters, mothers, aunts and friends that we’re coming for you and we’re tougher together.

The Hawaiian Walk for Women’s Cancer is a challenge like no other.

Each individual who takes it on is tough, courageous and will make a real difference to women’s cancer research.

To take part on Saturday 4th May 2019, you must:

  1. Fundraise a minimum of $1,000 per registrant that goes directly to researchers at the Perkins to investigate women’s cancers and discover better treatments and breakthroughs faster.
  2. Join us for training or train by yourself so that you’re ready to take on the challenge.
