the Walk

This year, Cancer stops with me!

This is the 8th Walk for Women’s Cancer benefitting WA women’s cancer research at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. 100% of the donations go back to the Perkins to support the Institute.

This Walk is not a race, it’s a journey. First-time Walkers are always blown away by the incredible closeness and friendliness of participants. It can be summed up in one sentence.

“We may start the walk as strangers, but we end it as family.”

How it works:


Register here.


The minimum fundraising amount is $500 per Walker but don’t worry we’re here to help you raise that.


35km is more than a walk in the park so you need to ease your way up to it.


You can either walk 35km over 7 days in the lead up to May 29, or 35 km or 42km on the day.


Before, during and after the Walk! We celebrate sisterhood, friendship, cancer battles and sore feet!

Smash it

If you raise $2000 or more, you join our VIP club, The Promenade Club.
