Women Waging War on Cancer

We're not fast, we're not fancy, but...

we're lots of fun...and we're fully focused on fighting for better outcomes for those of us who are diagnosed with cancer.

There's nothing more powerful than a group of women who are fighting for a deeply personal cause that drives them to challenge themselves and achieve things they didn't think themselves capable of....like riding 200km over a weekend!

Our cause is cancer.  We are women warriors, here to wage war on cancer, so that our sisters, our mothers, our daughters, our aunties, our grandmothers, our besties, our nieces, and our grandchildren will have a better chance against cancer, should it strike.  

We're riding to support the world-class cancer researchers at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research to drive discoveries to help battle this terrible disease both now and in the future.

Please help us, help the Perkins by joining like-minded women in the ride or by donating to our team.  Everyone can play a part in preventing and treating cancer.

Dawn & Chris (founders of Women Waging War on Cancer 2020)
