This year we’re heading to the charming township of Daylesford, Victoria exploring the picturesque Goldfields Track and Hepburn Springs whilst trekking in the name of bowel cancer prevention.

The Trek ends with a celebration party at the finish line.

This year the JLF Trek Victoria will be in memory of Catherine ‘Riney’ Ross. Riney and her Research4Riney team have been incredible supporters of the Jodi Lee Foundation.
In January 2019 Riney lost her battle with bowel cancer. She was a part of our family here at the Jodi Lee Foundation and is greatly missed. Her fundraising campaign, Research4Riney, has raised over $250,000 for bowel cancer research. 'Riney' helped spread awareness of bowel cancer, and her dedication and commitment has saved lives.
Riney's family, friends and supporters team Research4Riney are trekking again this year.
