Raised so far
How will you
Go the Distance?
Chris O’Brien Lifehouse patients collectively travel 380,000 kms every year for their cancer treatment. In August we want you to do the same.
Whether you choose to walk, run, cycle or swim, every kilometre you clock will help us reach our goal to raise vital funds for patients with cancer at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse.
As we strive to reduce the journey from research findings to treatment options, the funds you raise enable us to reach more patients and provide access to the highest level of patient care.
Your journey will help patients get through theirs.

Port Macquarie to

This is Caleb's route to Chris O'Brien Lifehouse. At 16km per day, you could run and participate in a mini-marathon!

At 8km a day you could go for a stroll in the morning and then one at night and job done!

4km per day! That's a walk to the cafe and back. Or a skate around the park. Or if you've got flippers for legs, a revitalising daily ocean swim.
