WHY THE PCT?
I want to take people on this harsh journey to symbolise the incredible courage that countless children face who are fighting this terrible disease so bravely. The aim is to raise awareness so that every parent out there knows what the early warning signs of childhood cancer are and to raise funds to help CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation SA in their efforts to support and aid families whose children are fighting for their lives.
Fewer people have hiked the entire PCT than have climbed Mount Everest, and with all the undulating ascents and descents, the hike is the equivalent of almost 15 ascents of Mt Everest from sea level.
It is a challenge that I am willing to throw myself into, if it means I can raise awareness and make a difference in the lives of children who are battling childhood cancer.
