About The Aconcagua Gutsy Challenge

In 2017-2018, a team of intrepid adventurers will climb one of the seven summits, Aconcagua, in Argentina.

Aconcagua (Ah-kon-CAR-gwa) is the highest mountain in the world outside the Himalayas, rising 1,000m above its neighbours and is visible from the Pacific coast 100 kilometres away. This will be a challenging climb of 6,962 metres which will test our gutsy climbers physically and mentally. 

The team are raising funds to support innovative and vital research into gastro-intestinal (GI) cancer, to provide better treatments for people living with GI cancer. Our ultimate aim is to make GI cancer a disease of the past.

GI cancer affects the oesophagus, stomach, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bowel. Over 24,000 Australians are affected every year and 33 Australians die every day. That's one person every 45 minutes.

The five-year survival rate is just 49% and we want to lift it!

Please join us in reaching the top or donate to support the team today.

About The GI Cancer Institute

The GI Cancer Institute saves lives by funding gastro-intestinal (GI) cancer clinical trials research in Australia.

Gastro-Intestinal (GI) cancers include the oesophagus, stomach, liver, gall bladder, pancreas and bowel. GI Cancers are the most common form of cancer, directly affecting more than 24,000 Australians each year and claiming a devastating 33 lives a day.

The research that we fund enables Australians with GI cancer to receive the best medical treatment. By conducting research in Australia, our cancer patients receive new treatments three to five years earlier than if the research was to take place overseas.
