How It Works

Go the Distance

In September, we want you to Go the Distance to support regional patients to access world-class care at Chris O'Brien Lifehouse. Whether you choose to walk, swim, run, row or cycle or even skateboard, you can help bring cancer care closer to home for all people across NSW. Go it alone or create a team to share the challenge!

How far will you go?

Choose a distance that patients travel to get from their home to Chris O'Brien Lifehouse. Or select your own goal. Then it's time to get moving!

90km: Gosford to Chris O'Brien Lifehouse

This is the length of Josh's journey to treatment. At 3km per day, it's a walk to a local cafe or a couple of swims at the beach.

130km: Sthn Highlands to Chris O'Brien Lifehouse

At just under 5km per day, you can challenge yourself to a daily jog, bike ride or skate around the park.

250kms: Orange to
Chris O'Brien Lifehouse 

Level up your challenge and commit to 8.5km a day. Or team up with friends and split the distance!

490kms: Port Macquarie to 
Chris O’Brien Lifehouse 

16km a day isn't for the faint-hearted -  so why not rally your mates and tackle this epic challenge as a team?

Choose your own!

You can choose one of the pre-selected journeys or your own kilometre goal.
