Join the RBWH Foundation China Trek 2020 to help the Royal give its patients the best care possible by funding new research and care initiatives.
The RBWH Foundation China Trek 2020 will raise money for RBWH researchers to complete their promising and ground-breaking research into early detection tests for prostate cancer. You can help bring about the next major breakthrough in prostate cancer diagnostics by joining the China Trek 2020.
Winding its way across the north of China, from the Yellow Sea to the Gobi Desert, the Great Wall of China stands as one of mankind’s most impressive architectural accomplishments.
On the China Trek 2020, you’ll travel through history to the very heart of China’s ancient culture. Over five days, you’ll trek some of the most spectacular sections of this world wonder, some parts reclaimed by the forest, others restored to their original magnificence.
With the support of expert guides and the camaraderie of like-minded teammates, you’ll tackle the Great Wall together and get a taste of China’s culture all while helping support current and future patients of the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital receive the best care possible.
Researchers at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital are at the edge of a major breakthrough in early detection testing for prostate cancer.
Initial research conducted with the University of Queensland has shown promise for prostate cancer detection via a simple urine test. The test is more accurate and accessible than the blood tests and MRIs currently required. And with prostate cancer affecting one in five Queensland men, and early detection key to successful treatment, this diagnostic test has the power to save lives.
Additional funding is needed to confirm the findings and eventually roll the testing out to patients in clinics.
Every dollar you raise from the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital Foundation China Trek 2020 will go towards continuing the research and will help countless Queensland men and their families.
