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's 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.

Please note that we require that teams must have a minimum of two members. This is for health and safety reasons. If you register as an individual, you will be paired up with another trekker or team. This may mean that you might have an extra team member than what you registered with.
Fees include: water and snacks along the trek. You’ll also get a bib to wear, a downloadable training and trekking guide, weekly trek training and fundraising resources.
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 goal for each group:
However, you can always set your own 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 does not contribute to your fundraising goal.
