Join Chris O’Brien Lifehouse in China next year as they trek the Great Wall!
As part of this life-changing adventure, you will challenge yourself like never before as you take on the twists, turns, steps and slopes of the Great Wall. You will discover the contrasts of ancient and modern Beijing, including Tiananmen Square and the grand imperial architecture of the Forbidden City. To top it off, you will be joined by a group of like-minded Chris O’Brien Lifehouse supporters, driven by the desire to improve the quality of life for Australian cancer patients and their families.
Winding its way across the north of China, from the Yellow Sea to the Gobi Desert, the Great Wall of China is one of mankind’s most impressive architectural accomplishments.
As part of this adventure, you’ll travel through history to the very heart of China’s ancient culture. Over five days, you’ll trek between mist-covered mountains, into local villages, across rolling farmlands and through dense forest.
With the support of expert guides, you’ll explore the many facets of the Great Wall, deciphering the ancient stories and poems etched into its watchtowers—every brick seeming to tell a story of war and adventure.
Swapping the majesty of the Great Wall for the hustle and bustle of Beijing, you are immediately immersed in China’s confounding and contrasting culture. Discover the ancient history of the Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven, experience the poignancy of Tiananmen Square and marvel at the modernity of the 798 Art District.
Best of all, you will raise vital funds for Chris O’Brien Lifehouse to transform cancer treatment for Australians through discovery, research and uncompromising care.
Every year in NSW alone, nearly 39,000 people are diagnosed with cancer – that’s more than 100 every day. Around one in two men and one in three women will get cancer.
At Chris O’Brien Lifehouse our mission is to improve the quality of life of our cancer patients, by advancing the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of this devastating disease.
Chris O’Brien Lifehouse is more than a hospital, it’s a place of hope, possibility, healing and life. By taking part in this inspiring adventure, you are bringing hope to the lives of cancer patients, their carers and families.
- $50 could buy a cancer patient’s transport to or from treatment. Some of our most vulnerable patients don’t have their own transportation or family who can provide it.
- $75 could fund an oncology nutrition plan, which can help patients reduce the symptoms of their cancer and the side effects of treatment.
- $100 could fund one hour of time for a small research team to study new ways of reducing depression after cancer treatment.
- $500 could fund crucial personal protective equipment for our clinical trials nurses in our cancer tissue bank and cryotank facility. The tissue bank is essential in finding a cure for cancer through collection of tumour samples and other biomarkers.
Your support helps us provide exceptional care for our patients, make strides in research and treatment and support our vision of a life unaffected by cancer.
