Mr Dom and friends are Trekking Kokoda to raise funds for the Children’s Cancer Institute.
We would love your support to help cure childhood cancer. As a father I am passionate to helping raise much needed funds to fulfil our dream of one day a world without childhood cancer.
We will start our Kokoda Trek on Saturday 15 April 2017 and finish ANZAC Day Tuesday 25 April 2017.
The trek is 10 days covering 100 gruelling kilometres.
We have chosen to raise the funds by trekking Kokoda as we are very passionate about our ANZAC spirit and respect the ultimate sacrifice taken by our service men and woman. Keeping in mind their anguish and pain all those years ago we want to walk in the footsteps and experience this trek in their spirit - at the same time make this sacrifice of hardship and pain in thought of innocent children suffering from childhood cancer.
Every year more than 950 Australian children and adolescents will be diagnosed with cancer, and every week nearly three Australian children and adolescents will die of cancer. Children’s Cancer Institute exists solely to put a stop to this. As the only independent medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to childhood cancer, our role is vital. Because, despite our progress, cancer still kills more children than any other disease. Our task won’t be easy – childhood cancer is hugely complex – but we’re confident that with the brightest brains, the best facilities and the greatest determination, we will get the job done.
We are helping cure childhood cancer. It's not if. It's when.
