With bowel cancer still the second most common cancer in Australia, The Jodi Lee Foundation helps raise awareness to educate all Australians on bowel cancer prevention and the steps you can take to lead a healthier life.
The JLF SA Trek is back for its eighth trek, and will take trekkers through the beautiful Heysen Trail to raise money for the prevention of bowel cancer.
In memory of Sherie Hagger, a long-time supporter of the foundation who has recently passed away from bowel cancer at aged 37, the JLK Trek SA will this year take place on 15 and 16 May.
The JLF SA Trek 2020 is special as it marks their 10th anniversary year. The two-day 80km trek will explore the beautiful Kuitpo Forest and stunning Fleurieu Peninsula countryside.
Those participating in the 40km, 20km or 10km treks will begin on Saturday 16 May with the event ending with their infamous finish line celebration, complete with a hearty meal, drinks and live music.
The JLF Trek is an endurance event designed to challenge you physically and mentally, therefore a medium to high level of fitness is required.
Entry fee includes event safety and management, fully supported checkpoints, bus transfers, hike guides, safety bibs and the finish line celebration.
Entry is permitted to ages 14 and over (participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times). Registrations will close on Friday 24 April 2020 unless sold out prior.
Set yourself a personal goal, have fun with friends and meet new people whilst enjoying the view and experiencing an adventure in the outdoors, all for a charitable cause.
