The JLF Trek SA 2019

About the Trek

SOLD OUT!

 

Explore the stunning Fleurieu Peninsula coast and inland countryside around Victor Harbor hiking 80km, 25km or 10km in the name of bowel cancer prevention. Set yourself a personal challenge, get fit, have fun with friends and meet new people while enjoying the camaraderie and experiencing an adventure in the great outdoors. The JLF Trek ends with a celebration party at the finish line, with food, drinks and music!

This year the JLF Trek SA will be in memory of Sherie Hagger. We said goodbye to Sherie who sadly passed away on 19 February 2019, at just 37 years of age, after a 5-year battle with bowel cancer. Sherie was a huge advocate for the early detection of bowel cancer and a great supporter of the Jodi Lee Foundation. 

Don’t miss out on this incredible challenge. Places will be limited.

Fundraising

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:

  • 80km – individual fundraising target $500
  • 25km – individual fundraising target $500
  • 10km – individual fundraising target $100 

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.

THE FINE PRINT

Jodi Lee Foundation are the event organisers of The JLF Trek South Australia 2019. If we deem the route unsafe (due to but not limited to heavy rain, lightning, high winds, bushfire or ‘acts of god’) we may, at our sole discretion, re-route The JLF Trek, find an alternative shortened course, or cancel the event. If the event is cancelled, re-routed or shortened, no refund of registration fees, fundraising monies or transfer to another JLF Trek event will be made. Due to the nature of our events and the months of preparation involved, the event will not be re-scheduled to any other weekend. We also reserve the right to change the route or checkpoint locations or distances as necessary. Any changes will be communicated to participants prior to the event. Car parking will be advised closer to the event date. Entry permitted to ages 14 and over (participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times).
