Cancer is tough, but we're tougher

In May 2021, I’m challenging myself to walk 35km as part of the Women’s Cancer Challenge. I’m doing it to raise much-needed funds for women’s cancer research right here in WA at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.

...with a twist...

All being well regarding state borders etc I will be walking in central Australia, in the Simpson Desert (the very bottom right corner of the NT) with camels!!

This diary double booking wasn't even because of Covid - it was because of the massive rain event earlier this year that flooded central Australia's rivers. So in late May I will be doing 35 kms for the Perkins Institute. I'll post photos I promise.

Please help me, help the Perkins.

Let’s walk towards a cancer-free future – together.

Please help me, help the Perkins.
