Climb to Conquer Cancer

Climb to Conquer Cancer

Who? The Aussie Alps Ascent team 

Amount Raised? Almost $10,000 (so far)

In late 2015 three local Western Australian Women set out to raise funds for Cancer research at the Perkins.  

The team took on the huge challenge of a 10 day Trek of Mt Blanc, one of Europe's tallest Alps.

Julie Paul, the team founder, said "We have decided to make a difference by creating a fundraising  team for Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. As part of this challenge is a 10 day Trek which will test us physically and mentally."

"Our hope is to raise over $2000 each with the support of familly, friends and the wider community."

The team will begin their trek in September 2016.
