Join the Hike for Health: an adventure of a lifetime!
Trek the Great Wall of China and raise funds for Bowel Cancer New Zealand
The Hike for Health brings together supporters from various New Zealand and Australian health and medical research organisations for an adventure trek to the Great Wall of China. You’ll be part of an incredible team, raising awareness and funds for a health organisation close to your heart. You’ll stand united, as a team, atop the Great Wall, knowing the difference you’ve made.
On the Hike for Health, you’ll travel through history to the very heart of China’s ancient culture. Starting in Beijing, you’ll quickly swap the hustle and bustle of the city for the majesty of the Great Wall. You will challenge yourself like never before as you trek on remote and unrestored paths, between mountains, through local villages and across rolling farmlands. With the support of our expert guides, you’ll explore the many facets of the Great Wall, deciphering the ancient stories and poems etched into its watchtowers, every brick seeming to tell a story of war and adventure.
Immerse yourself in the ancient history of this World Wonder, explore Beijing’s Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven, and experience the poignancy of Tiananmen Square.
Best of all, you will be raising funds to assist some incredible health and medical research charities as we work towards better health for all Kiwis and Australians.
The Hike for Health’s goal is to raise critical funds for health and medical charities in Australia and New Zealand. We want to assist health and medical research organisations to provide the best possible outcomes for Australians and Kiwis.
New Zealand has one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world and bowel cancer is the second highest cause of cancer death in New Zealand. More than 3,000 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer each year and more than 1,200 will die from the disease.
With early detection bowel cancer is curable in more than 75% of cases.
The fundraising from this adventure will enable Bowel Cancer New Zealand to continue providing vital education and awareness for early detection of the disease as well as offering support to those who are already affected by bowel cancer.
