How will you
Go the Distance?

Cancer doesn’t care that you have your whole life ahead of you. It affects everyone and can target anyone. Right now luck is still a huge part of the cancer equation. At Chris O’Brien Lifehouse we are on a mission to remove luck from the cancer equation.

You can be a change in a future where treatment isn’t reliant on luck. 

Chris O’Brien Lifehouse patients collectively travel 380,000 kms every year for their cancer treatment. This August we want you to do the same. Whether you swim, bike, run, every step counts towards life-saving research and treatment.

Together we can Go the Distance this August.
