Bowel cancer survivor and Jodi Lee Foundation Youth Ambassador, Captain Hugo Toovey, will lead The Jodi Lee Foundation’s inaugural Queensland Trek (JLF Trek QLD) on Saturday 24 August and Sunday 25 August 2019 in Brisbane.
Trekkers will explore a beautiful side of Brisbane hiking 84km over two days, or 42km, 23km, or 12km over one day. Trekkers will start the two-day 84km hike on Saturday 24 August at Lake Manchester and conclude on Sunday 25 at The Gap. For those participating in the 42km hike, hikers will walk from Mount Glorious to The Gap, and can choose to walk on Saturday or Sunday. The 23km route will take hikers from Mount Nebo to The Gap, and the 12km hikers will walk the Enoggera Reservoir Loop.
The JLF Trek QLD ends with a celebration at the finish line.
The Jodi Lee Foundation was established in honour of Jodi Lee, who lost her battle with bowel cancer at age 41. With bowel cancer still the second most common cancer in Australia, the Jodi Lee Foundation is urging people to register and take part in the trek to raise awareness and funds for bowel cancer prevention.
Now is the perfect time to set yourself a personal challenge, get fit, have fun with friends, meet new people and experience an adventure in the great Australian outdoors. To find out more or to register, visit the event website here.
