This year, we’re taking the JLF Trek to the beautifully tropical South East Queensland. You’ll explore the stunning countryside around Enoggera, Lake Manchester, Lake Glorious, Mount Nebo and The Gap whilst trekking 84km, 42km, 23km or 12km in the name of bowel cancer prevention.

Captain Hugo Toovey of the Australian Army will lead our inaugural Queensland Trek. Hugo's life drastically changed in 2013 when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer, while he was fighting (and beating) this he was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2018. If it wasn't for early detection Hugo's chances of survival would have been very different. Hugo continues to promote awareness and prevention throughout Australia, and as our Youth Ambassador. 

Gather yourself and your friends and test your fitness, enjoy the spirit of camaraderie in the great outdoors. The Trek ends with nibbles and drinks to celebrate reaching the finish line.

Places will be limited.


Your workplace signs up a minimum of 4 employees for the 84km distance and receives a complimentary Workplace Prevention Program session.

Raised of $100,000 Goal


Did you know that we rely on fundraisers like yourself so we can continue to raise awareness for bowel cancer prevention? And with bowel cancer still the second most common cancer in Australia we have a lot more work to do!

We have a set minimum fundraising amount for each trekker:

  • 84km – individual fundraising target $500
  • 42km – individual fundraising target $500
  • 23km – individual fundraising target $500
  • 12km – individual fundraising target $100

However, you can always set a higher fundraising target!

You can kick off your own fundraising with a tax deductible donation when you register or do this later. Please note that your registration fee covers the cost of your entry in the trek only and does not contribute to your fundraising goal.

When you log in to your profile you will find posters and social media images you can use to help your fundraising campaign.
