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!
