About Trek to Save Lives: El Camino 2019

After the incredible success of 2018’s Trek for Treatment to Machu Picchu – which raised more than $40,000 to support Australians affected by ovarian cancer – we are proud to announce our 2019 adventure: Trek to Save Lives: El Camino.

Join this incredible journey to challenge yourself like never before and experience one of the world’s greatest treks as you travel from Sarria to Santiago, into historic hamlets, beside running rivers and across mountain meadows. To top it off, you will raise vital funds to help Ovarian Cancer Australia provide direct support to women living with ovarian cancer and fund prevention programs and research initiatives to create a future of hope for all Australians.

“Every moment was one of absolute wonder. The environment, the people and the experiences we had fixed my soul”
