The Challenge

Join The Kids' Cancer Project as they take on the challenge of tackling some of the most remarkable parts of Australia’s Snowy Mountain ranges to raise funds for childhood cancer research.

This is an adventure like no other! Not only will you trek to the summit of Mt Kosciuszko, Australia’s highest mountain, but also tackle Dead Horse Gap and the twin Rams Head Peaks. As you put your body and mind to the test, you’ll be rewarded with unparalleled views of colossal mountainscapes, majestic alpine woodlands and the breathtaking expanse of endless open sky. See historic huts nestled in the mountainside and the crystal clear waters of Lake Cootapatamba, one of the only size glacial lakes in Australia.

And the best part? You’ll be helping inspire action and accelerate solutions for children with cancer, bettering their survival outcomes.



"We embarked upon this adventure for CDI, but it turned into an incredible weekend that will always be remembered."

— Tiff Broughtwood, Childhood Dementia Initiative 3 Peaks 2021

"It was a really great experience. The guides were very helpful and full of knowledge and experience, and the challenge of the hike was really rewarding."

— Thomas Gorrie, Cure Brain Cancer Foundation 3 Peaks 2021

The Difference You'll Make



Survival Starts with Science.

Over 950 Australian children are diagnosed with cancer each year, a number that can be hard to wrap your head around. Sadly, some of these children will not live to adulthood, and those who do survive are often left dealing with the side effects of these harsh treatments. 


In FY20/21, The Kids’ Cancer Project funded 46 scientists across 32 different projects, all dedicated to exploring new and bold treatments, with minimal side effects for the children. With your help, more innovation is just around the corner…

“The Kids’ Cancer Project is supporting a lot of vital, exciting, innovative work. They’re helping researchers to move quickly and aggressively to pursue new ideas that we hope are going to make a real difference.” - Associate Professor Alex Swarbrick, Garvan Institute of Medical Research.

When you consider that $78 funds a global cancer specialist consultation on the best treatment for three kids, or that $222 covers the cost of freighting eight kids’ tumour samples to a specialist lab, it is no doubt that the $2,000 that you raise on the 3 Peaks challenge will go far.
