Breast cancer turns mountains into mole hills.

You might think a diagnosis of breast cancer and the treatment that follows would be the ultimate challenge. In April 2006, a group of breast cancer survivors took the strength from their experiences to conquer the 2000m summit of Mt Hope. Each step was a celebration of their journey through breast cancer, as well as a powerful inspiration to the thousands of other women diagnosed each year. 

New Zealand

In 2006 a group of breast cancer survivors journeyed to New Zealand, where stunning wilderness provided the perfect setting for the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. That year New Zealand played host to another epic quest as a group of breast cancer survivors challenge themselves on a one week trek by foot and cycle across the highlands.

Arizona

In 2007, a group of breast cancer survivors took the strength from their experiences to trek through Canyon de Chelly in Arizona.  The trek was not only a physical challenge as the group tackled desert stretches and scaled canyon walls, but was also a journey through time and history of the Navajo Nation with a local guide.
