Walking to Beat Cancer
The Hawaiian Women's Cancer Challenge has a new format in 2020 - and this year, it's personal.
The Walk, which raises much-needed funds for important medical research into women's cancer, is a virtual event and participants will complete their 35km individually across seven days
More than 500 participants will don bright purple shirts and embark on the Walk - while raising awareness and funds for the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.
Hawaiian is pleased to partner with Perkins for the Women's Cancer Challenge and support the important work of WA medical researchers as they strive for a future without women's cancer.
The medical research at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research helps women like Kylie Beard who has triple negative breast cancer and carries the ominous BRCA gene. She hopes medical research will prevent other women receiving a cancer diagnosis.
“I want every woman who has suffered with cancer to come out at the Walk and celebrate that she has conquered it or to have a support network who are walking for her, if she can’t do it,” Kylie says.
Undertaking the Hawaiian's Women's Cancer Challenge walk over seven days represents the 1 in 7 women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the community.
