In September 2020, an extraordinary group of Australian business leaders will set off foreastern Africa to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, raising funds for The Westmead Institute for Medical Research Foundation (WIMR Foundation). Between them, this elite group aims to raise at least $1 million to fund research breakthroughs at The Westmead Institute for Medical Research (WIMR).

CEOs and business leaders from across Australia are taking on a bold challenge to help fund life-changing medical research. 

Each participant will pledge to raise at least $100,000 for the WIMR Foundation by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.

The team will be pushed both physically and mentally as they trek for six days through five different climatic zones to the summit of the highest free-standing mountain in the world. They’ll challenge themselves and push their limits to help WIMR tackle some of the major disease challenges of our time.

WIMR’s brilliant and driven researchers are working on new ways to prevent, diagnose, treat and cure the most serious health challenges of our time — illnesses like HIV, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, kidney and liver issues, and deadly viruses. 

Research is critical to changing outcomes for these diseases, but it is time-consuming and costly. By raising $1,000,000, the Million Dollar Kilimanjaro Challenge will help  progress medical research discoveries to life-changing and life-saving outcomes for patients.
