September is “Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month”, and TEAM KRISTEN is taking on the Step Up Challenge. Led by big-sister Elsa, TEAM KRISTEN will endeavour to hike to the top of 5 of the Glasshouse Mountain peaks in one day (Sunday 27th September)! Elsa is also challenging her team to bust out some Irish jigging on each 5 summits.

Please show your support for TEAM KRISTEN by sharing and donating so that we may continue to raise awareness and funds for much needed research.

As we set out on this challenge, we’d also like to challenge you to please support us:

Could you sponsor us $10 per peak? or even more epic- $50 per peak?

All funds raised through TEAM KRISTEN will go to Kristen’s Living Legacy which Kristen created shortly before she passed in December 2019. Kristen knew first hand the importance of research so that women can live longer lives. Currently only 15% of women with low-grade serous ovarian cancer will survive the disease and there is no early detection or screening test for ovarian cancer.

“The Step-Up challenge allows you to choose your own challenge, so as someone who has not done much hiking, I wanted to choose something that would challenge myself physically. These mountains are an iconic part of Queensland and I know the beautiful views from the summits will be worth it!– Elsa

Kristen’s fearless spirit, thirst for adventure and dedication to helping others will always inspire.

 

Did you know that 4 Australians are diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer each day and that 3 Australians die of ovarian cancer every day?

Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the ‘donate’ button. The more people that know about Step Up for Ovarian Cancer, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means so much that we are able to keep Kristen’s spirit alive and carry on her selfless efforts to improve outcomes for women with Ovarian Cancer!

    Good luck. What a wonderful cause. You guys are the best!

From sunrise on Sunday, a team of 21 embarked upon the Step Up Challenge hiking up 5 Glasshouse Mountains in one day to raise awareness and funds for ovarian cancer for Kristen’s Living Legacy.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us and donated! It was a fantastic adventure and Kristen was leading us every step of the way.

There is still time to donate before the campaign's end, so if you know anyone who might like to donate please share! Our aim is to fund research into this disease so that other young women like Kristen may survive.
