Grab your fur baby and join the 57km Dog Walk Challenge this February – an initiative led by the largest AUNZ oncology research group, the Breast Cancer Trials

The fundraiser invites all dog enthusiasts and their four-legged companions to embark on a “pawsome” challenge. The goal is to walk 57 kilometers throughout February, raising funds for breast cancer research.

If you and your furry friend indulged in a bit too much turkey during the festive season, participating in this fabulous February challenge offers a fantastic opportunity to shed those holiday pounds. Not only will it contribute to your fitness and well-being, but it will also make a positive impact on breast cancer research.

Australia sees 57 new breast cancer diagnoses each day, making the 57km Dog Walk Challenge a symbolic and impactful way to raise essential funds and honour those facing or who have faced breast cancer. Breast Cancer Trials, established in 1978, conducts national and international clinical trials research involving over 900 researchers across 114 institutions in Australia and New Zealand.

Clinical trials research by Breast Cancer Trials has led to significant breakthroughs, including life-saving drugs such as Herceptin, Exmestane, Letrozole, and Tamoxifen, saving countless lives globally. Every dollar raised during the February campaign will contribute to this life-saving research.

Participants in the campaign will receive a stylish t-shirt for themselves and a bandana for their canine companions, ensuring they walk in both comfort and fashion. The health benefits of regular dog walking extend beyond participants, including improved cardiovascular fitness, lower blood pressure, and reduced stress for both humans and their pets.

By joining this campaign, you not only improve your own well-being and that of your furry friend but also contribute to groundbreaking breast cancer research. It’s a win-win for everyone involved!
