Child Cancer Research’s goal is to bring together members of the community, businesses, and organisations to join us in this fight against childhood cancer. They aim to raise awareness about the disease and to raise important funds that will go towards research that will find safer and less intrusive treatments that will ultimately save the lives of children all over the world.

This year’s homebase is the stunning Fairbridge Village, located in the heart of WA. Get ready for an unforgettable ride through picturesque landscapes and some rugged terrain matched with awe-inspiring scenery.
