Regular exercise has been proven to reduce your risk of developing a gut cancer so at the same time as you partake in an adventure of discovery, you’ll also be loving your guts as you take on this 85km physical challenge.

Once you have registered for the Trek, we will forward you a link to setup your own online fundraising page which you can share with family and friends to support you with donations. We ask everyone taking part to raise a minimum of $2,000 and with the regular fundraising support and tips along the way, you should exceed the goal.

Plains to Peaks Trek 2021

This gutsy adventure took place in March 2021 led by founding Gut Cancer Foundation board member Prof. Mike Findlay. The group of 14 took on a spectacular journey from the Canterbury Plains to the Peaks of the Canterbury Alps over a week of trekking covering 70km. They raised an incredible $43,000 to help improve survival rates, quality of life and outcomes for New Zealanders affected by gut cancers. Huge thanks to the team for their fantastic fundraising efforts!

Southern Alps Trek 2019

In November 2019 our Gutsy team took on the challenge of trekking across New Zealand’s Southern Alps. Walking 70km of the secluded ridges of New Zealand’s mountain range, the team trekked up to 18km a day to complete their challenge.

The team matched their physical feats with an astonishing fundraising effort, raising $35,000 to fund clinical trials, giving New Zealanders access to new treatments faster.

3 of the team discusses their motivation for taking part in the video below:
