Make a Mountain of Difference
An incredible adventure trek to the 10 highest mountain peaks in Australia, in support of families impacted by childhood cancer.
Childhood Cancer Support, in partnership with Adventure Professionals, are calling upon hearty explorers to undertake the trek of a lifetime, ascending the 10 highest Australian summits, whilst also raising vital funds for a great cause.
Satisfy your spirit of adventure and giving, embarking on an exciting 2-day trek through the Snowy River, across gorgeous alpine scenery with Australia’s only mainland glacial lakes as the backdrop, and to the peaks of the ten highest mountain summits in Australia, taking in the beautiful 360 degree mountain views. All of this whilst helping to support children and families faced with childhood cancer.
Our goal is for every adventurer who takes part in the trek to raise a minimum of $500 (not including trek costs) to donate directly to CCS. Funds can be raised through sponsorship per peak you attain, a one-off donation for the entire trek, or fundraising through a series of events such as trivia nights, fancy dress occasions, cocktail evenings, movie nights, garage sales etc. in the lead up to the trek.
All donations will significantly enhance CCS’ ability to provide its unique and crucial services to the families of children diagnosed with cancer. As a not for profit organisation, CCS relies entirely on the generosity of the community to continue to provide its existing support services and expand the organisation to meet the increasing need for accommodation.
