Challenges

 

Do you like a challenge? Want to do something extraordinary and help to make a difference? We know just the thing!

 

Change your life and the lives of others by participating in one of the Flinders Foundation's adventure challenges.

 

By fundraising and participating in these 'bucket list' adventures, you will not only be helping to advance health in SA, you'll be changing the lives of people who need it most and your efforts will also be rewarded with the adventure of a lifetime!

 

Past participants have successfully raised funds in many creative and fun ways. We will provide support and guidance along the way to help you reach your target. We will also help you develop and manage your fundraising plan.

 

For many of our fundraisers, achieving their fundraising target is as simple as reaching out to family, friends, networks and their community. From fundraising classics such as trivia nights, movie nights and sausage sizzles, to more out-of-the-box fundraising ideas, we will help you develop and implement the best ideas to ensure you reach your goal.

 

 



 

Larapinta, Alice Springs

30 July - 5 August


Join us to Trek the Red Centre for cancer with Team Flinders and you’ll play a vital role in improving the


lives of cancer patients.


The Larapinta Trail is regarded as one of Australia’s premier walking tracks. From the old Alice Springs Telegraph Station to the peak of Mount Sonder, the trail stretches 223 kilometres along the backbone of the West MacDonnell Ranges.

As part of this incredible – yet challenging – adventure, you will stand on ancient escarpments and gaze out upon the ochre-coloured landscapes of Central Australia. You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and trek beside one of the world’s oldest river systems.

By day, you will challenge yourself as you trek across the Red Centre, experiencing the diversity of desert habitats and learn the unique history of Australia’s Indigenous people. At night, you will fall asleep to the sounds of native wildlife under a blanket of stars.

All funds raised by participants in this challenge will be dedicated to delivering programs which aim to provide cancer patients, and importantly cancer survivors, access to the best quality of life possible.
