The Challenge

In November 2023, you’re invited on the adventure-of-a-lifetime into the heart of Nepal, to raise vital funds to help the International CML Foundation Cure CML.

Join the iCMLf Climb for a Cure Annapurna 2023 and with every step you take through the majestic Annapurna mountain range, you’ll raise vital funds to help the iCMLf get closer to a cure.

Immersed in the rich history and culture of Nepal’s Gurung (Tamu) people, you’ll discover one of the world’s premier trekking destinations – the Annapurna mountain range, through paddy fields and fragrant forests, beside glaciers and waterfalls, and in the shadow of imposing snow-capped peaks. 



“Life changing. I stepped out of my comfort zone and experienced another world.”

— Carmel Schuts, UN Women Annapurna 2018

"It was the perfect way to meet new friends, discover new places, and challenge myself while supporting a noble cause."

— Rihab Nasr, Climb for a Cure Kilimanjaro 2019

"I have had a wonderful week that I will remember forever. The sights, experiences, and people were just fantastic."

— Damian Harriss, Climb for a Cure Kilimanjaro 2019

The Difference You'll Make


In the last 3 years, and with the help of the iCMLf Climb for a Cure – Kilimanjaro, the Foundation has invested over $300,000 in CML research. In the past year alone, the iCMLf has committed $50,000 to the iCMLf Genomics Alliance project ‘Investigating Clonal Hierarchy in CML’ and $100,000 to the iCMLf project looking to maximise treatment free remission.

We achieve more together. Will you meet this challenge? Will you climb for a cure?



Join the iCMLf in Annapurna in 2023 and you’ll raise vital funds to accelerate a cure for CML:

  • $50 will facilitate a test for CML
  • $500 will assist a clinician to train for one week at a CML centre of excellence
  • $1,000 will enable a shipment of 30 patient samples for testing
  • $20,000 will give a centre a machine for CML testing on site

Your impact could help find a cure faster.
