The Weekend to End Women’s Cancer

Each year thousands of women and men in Australia walk for a fantastic cause. The Weekend to End Women’s Cancer benefiting the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR) and Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH).

It is a two-day walking, teambuilding and bonding experience to remember the lives that have been lost to breast or gynaecological cancer – as well as to celebrate the lives that the fundraising efforts can help to save.

The annual event is held in Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney and participants pledge to raise at least $2,000 before commencing the walk.

In 2014, four energetic CANSTAR staff signed up for the Brisbane Walk and worked tirelessly to raise more than $8,000 for QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute (QIMR Berghofer). Team Leader Lindie Erasmus is one of those who has signed up again in 2015.
