Help raise funds for innovative medical research that translates into lasting health benefits by taking on a challenge to trek the Great Wall of China!
The Hike for Health brings together supporters from Australian and New Zealand health and medical research organisations for an adventure trek to the Great Wall of China. You’ll be part of an incredible team, raising awareness and funds for the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. You’ll stand united, as a team, atop the Great Wall, knowing the difference you’ve made to the future wellbeing of your friends and loved ones.
On the Hike for Health, you’ll travel through history to the very heart of China’s ancient culture.
Starting in Beijing, you’ll quickly swap the hustle and bustle of the city for the majesty of the Great Wall. You will challenge yourself like never before as you trek on remote and unrestored paths, between mountains, through local villages and across rolling farmlands. With the support of our 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.
Immerse yourself in the ancient history of this World Wonder, explore Beijing’s Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven, and experience the poignancy of Tiananmen Square.
Best of all, you will be raising funds to help ground-breaking research at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.
The Hike for Health’s goal is to raise critical funds for health and medical charities in Australia and New Zealand. We want to assist these incredible organisations to provide the best possible outcomes for Australian’s and Kiwi’s.
By participating in this incredible adventure, you will help fund laboratories dedicated to research and treatment of the most aggressive and deadly forms of cancer such as breast, pancreatic, liver, lung and skin cancers.Your hard work will also go towards laboratories dedicated to breakthrough research in Australia’s most prevalent diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes, and the early diagnosis and treatment of rare genetic diseases.
With every step you take, you will assist the vital services required to ensure researchers can continue their work uninterrupted. This includes supporting specialised equipment, staff and resources as well as things most people take for granted, like keeping cells alive in sub-zero freezers or purchasing test tubes.
Sometimes it’s the little things that lead to the most remarkable discoveries. One of these will be because of your kind support.
