Cancer is tough, but we're tougher

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

Two years ago we walked 42km, battled blisters, the heat, and niggling knee pain. But this was nothing compared to what our loved ones have gone through to battle cancer. 2020 saw Covid shut us down, however we are back, full steam ahead in 2021, and ready to continue the fight against cancer. 

There is so much more to be done to ensure that the women of WA – our mothers, sisters, daughters, friends and loved ones – living with cancer stay with us for as long as possible. We are training and fundraising in the lead up to the event. We'd be so grateful for your support. Please give generously to our donation page. 

Please help us, help the Perkins.

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

Thank you!

Please help me, help the Perkins.
