Catherine ‘Riney’ Ross

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 February 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.

Raised of $160,000 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 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.

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