Put Your Foot Down and make a real impact for pancreatic cancer

Location Details

New Farm Park, Brisbane

The Put Your Foot Down Brisbane walk returns to a face-to-face format in 2021 and is a great day out raising awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer with your local community.

Our passionate Brisbane based supporters have been turning out in purple with friends, family, colleagues and four-legged friends for years and in 2021 the easy 4.4km flat route will move to the central New Farm Park, on the banks of the picturesque Brisbane River.

All profits raised from our national walks go toward helping achieve our mission of dramatically increasing survival rates and quality of life for Australians impacted by pancreatic cancer.

Get your purple outfits ready and join us at New Farm Park on 16 May.

Fundraise for people living with pancreatic cancer

Fundraising fuels medical research which is critical to improving outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. Your fundraising efforts provide hope to those impacted by the disease and drives our ongoing research program, providing Australia’s best researchers an opportunity to work towards a possible future without pancreatic cancer. Fundraising is also easy and lots of fun!
