The Great Wall of China Challenge

It’s the experience of a lifetime! Trekking across some of the most remote and breathtaking sections of the Great Wall of China whilst raising vital funds for cancer research…

The Australian Cancer Research Foundation has launched its Great Wall of China Challenge and is inviting you to join in the 10 days of fun!

The Great Wall of China is an incredible architectural feat, a world heritage site with a history of more than 2,000 years and has to be experienced.

Like a gigantic dragon, the Great Wall traverses deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus stretching 6,700 kms from east to west of China. This challenging trek, which is scheduled for May 18-27, 2006, will see you experiencing sections of the wall rarely visited, allowing you to gain a deeper understanding of China’s vast history and her people. Finally, you will celebrate the end of your incredible journey in Beijing amidst the ancient splendours of the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace and the Temple of Heaven.

The Australian Cancer Research Foundation is offering you this opportunity by paying a small registration fee and fundraising a minimum amount. You will of course need to put in some trekking training, and then we guarantee you an adventure you will never forget.

One in three Australians will be diagnosed with cancer; at the Australian Cancer

Research Foundation we believe everyone can play a role in finding the eventual cure. You can ensure that vital research continues in the battle against cancer by joining us on our Great Wall of China Challenge 2006 now.
