The Australian Cancer Research Foundation’s 2007 Great Wall of China Challenge was a sell-out. The 21 participants raised a record sum from friends, colleagues and sponsors, every cent of which will go directly to cancer research.
2008 Great Wall – we’re doing it again, and more! Join in 10 days of discovery and fun! The Great Wall of China is an incredible architectural feat, a world heritage site with a history of more than 2,000 years.
Like a gigantic dragon, the Great Wall traverses deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus stretching 6,700 kms from east to the west of China. This challenging trek, which takes off on Friday September 21 and returns on Wednesday October 1, 2008, 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, Tian’anmen Square and the silk markets.
Here’s what one trekker had to say..
“The Great Wall of China Challenge was an amazing experience that will stay with me forever”.
The Australian Cancer Research Foundation is offering you this opportunity. All you need to do is pay a small registration fee and fundraise 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
