Trekking the incredible Larapinta Trail is an adventure on many people’s bucket lists.
Standing on ancient escarpments and gazing out upon the ochre-coloured landscapes of Central Australia, following Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and trekking beside one of the world’s oldest river systems is surely an adventure of a lifetime.
Our friends at Melanoma Institute Australia would like to invite you on their Outback Trek adventure in September 2018.
Not only will you experience a trek along one of Australia’s premier walking tracks, but you will be supporting life-saving research at Melanoma Institute Australia.
Australia has one of the highest rates of melanoma in the world. The good news is that 90% of melanomas can be successfully treated if detected early.
However, in the other 10% of cases, life-threatening spread will have already occurred.
More than 1,800 Australians will die from melanoma this year alone and it kills more young Australians (20-39 year olds) than any other single cancer.
Research at Melanoma Institute Australia has made significant progress in developing life-saving treatments, but support is still needed as there is still no cure. No-one should die from melanoma, and you can help make a difference while doing something that you love.
By taking part in this unique adventure you’ll pave the way for new research to improve melanoma treatment, and ultimately find a cure.
