Walk for Women's Cancer

Celebrate the women in your life and walk for women's cancers. It's a fact: 1 in 6 women will be diagnosed with a women's cancer by the age of 85 but more than 49,600 Queensland women are alive today after a diagnosis of a women's cancer in the past 25 years.

Everyone is welcome to walk in the fight against Women's cancers

But it's not limited to just women. Men and children are welcome and encouraged to come along to show their love and support for the wellbeing of all women.

Since its inception in 2004 by local Sunshine Coast woman, Cassandra Munson, the walk has attracted thousands of participants who come together to unite, celebrate and remember those affected by women's cancers.
