Are you looking to challenge yourself for a great cause? Whether you like trek, marathon, cycle or swim, you can test your physical limits while you support the search for lifesaving answers to devastating diseases. Make a major difference to medical research here in Western Australia by joining Team Perkins in a challenge event and help progress groundbreaking research discoveries.
Port to Pub
Held annually in March, the Channel 7 Port to Pub with Hotel Rottnest is an open water, long distance swimming event, where solos, duos or teams of four and six can cross the iconic Rottnest Channel.
Rottnest Channel Swim
Held annually in February, the South32 Rottnest Channel Swim is a 19.7km open water swim from Cottesloe Beach to Rottnest Island. You can fundraise for the Perkins while you prepare for your Rottnest Channel Swim.
HBF Run for a Reason
Held annually in May, the HBF Run for a Reason is WA’s largest community running event. You can support the Perkins as you walk or run 4km, 12km or 21kms for medical research.
WHY FUNDRAISE FOR THE PERKINS?
The Perkins has big plans – to make cancer a non-lethal disease, to use revolutionary technology to improve diagnosis and to find new ways to supercharge people’s immune system to help them overcome disease. We make breakthrough discoveries, we educate the community and we inspire Western Australia’s brightest minds to pursue interests in medical science.
We also know how fun and rewarding it can be to fundraise as part of a community challenge event and we want to make your time, effort and sweat count in the fight against disease. Partner with us and spearhead discovery in Western Australia!
