Join Rise Above on a journey through the breathtaking landscape of the Snowy Mountains, as we trek to the summit of Mount Kosciuszko to help make a tangible impact in the lives of those battling cancer.

Experience the majestic and wild beauty of Australia's only true alpine region as we make our way through the breathtaking scenery of Perisher Valley, stunning Blue Lake, and Mount Kosciuszko. This bucket-list adventure will introduce you to the very best of Australia’s High Country. Hiking in a small group with like-minded people and under the care of an expert guide, your journey will encompass glacier-fed freshwater creeks, historic huts, weathered snow gums and cool granite tors carved out during Australia’s last Ice Age. 

Most importantly, your fundraising efforts will directly contribute to providing crucial financial assistance to patients, helping them access treatments, medications, and essential support services they desperately need. Every step you take, every dollar you raise brings us closer to our goal of ensuring that no one faces the daunting challenges of cancer alone. 

Together, we can lighten the burden for patients and their families, offering hope, support, and a pathway to a brighter tomorrow.

With each stride, you're not just traversing terrain; you're paving the way for hope and support in the lives of those battling cancer and their families.

By joining initiatives like the Climb Against Cancer, you become a beacon of hope for those battling cancer ensuring they receive vital support during their treatment journey.
