The Challenge

Cancer is really tough.
But you're tougher.

About the Walk in 2021


The Walk for Women’s Cancer participants have been directly supporting WA women’s cancer research at the Perkins for the past 9 years. You have made a significant contribution to advances in treatment and breakthroughs in science.


In a (hopefully) COVID-free 2021, The Walk is returning to May and we will all come together to support and celebrate your enormous efforts. In the past a wonderful group of women and a growing group of men (thank you gents!) have walked 35km or 42km (your choice) in one day. 

In 2020 we were not able to come together as we have in the past, and we had to put the traditional walk format on hold to create a personal challenge that gave you options for when and how you walk.

This year you canwalk 35 kilometres your way – over 7 days in May, or all on the one day. The choice is yours.

We walk in unity to 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. You will do it safely, in smaller groups and your way.

Walk 35kms in one day

OR

Walk your way over 7 days.

This year, we’re giving you a choice. You can choose to walk your way over 7 days in tribute to the 1 in 7 Australian women who are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. You can walk a few kilometres each day, and end your Walk week at the official event in May 2021 (offical date coming soon).

Or, you can choose to complete your entire 35km Walk in one day at the official Walk for Women’s Cancer event in May (offical date coming soon).

To take part in the Walk:

  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.

Are you interested in walking a over the week? We will have a special 5km route for all of you who wish to complete your Walk with your fellow walkers in May.
