• The event

On Sunday 10 June 2018, take your desire to help people with cancer to new levels.  

Climb for Cancer is the ultimate vertical challenge.

Not only will you conquer 810 stairs and be rewarded with picturesque rooftop views (and the ultimate selfie) over the river city, but you’ll also be helping the one in two Australian's who are diagnosed with cancer, by giving them a better chance of beating it.*

You’ll not only have the chance to test your limits, but every step you take will make a real difference to thousands of Queenslanders by supporting ground-breaking prostate, breast and ovarian cancer research at Mater.

It’s going to take grit, determination and commitment—but we'll have your back every step of the way, with plenty of tips and tricks to get the most from your training and fundraising in the lead up to the big day.
