158 Challenge

By Lewi Taylor

9 Tasmanians will be diagnosed with cancer today.

150 Australians will die from cancer today.

1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.


Do I have your attention yet?


Cancer is unfair, unforgiving, and non-discriminatory. If you are not affected by it yourself, or do not know someone who is affected by it, then consider yourself one of the odd-ones-out!


Whilst some cancers are more common than others, and whilst personally I have been affected by specific cancers in members of my family, my goal is to improve the fighting chances and living conditions of ALL Tasmanians, with ANY cancer. This is because I know every story is individual, every story is inspiring, and every story needs to be understood.


That is why, from January to June 2022, I will be undertaking perhaps the most difficult existing endurance hiking challenge there is in Tasmania, and likely Australia, to raise funds for Cancer Council Tasmania.


It is called the "Abel Challenge".


Tasmania's landscape is like no other. Most know it by two words - 'wild' and 'green'. It is extremely mountainous, and contains some of the most remote wilderness destinations you could imagine.


Within Tasmania, there is a set of mountains titled the "Abels". An Abel is a mountain that meets two simple criteria - it is over 1,100m high, and is separated from other mountains by at least a 150m drop on all sides of its summit. This makes an Abel a prominent and challenging peak to climb.


158 mountains classify.


The fastest completion ever recorded of someone summiting all the Abels currently stands at two and a half years.


My goal is to summit them all in 158 days.


And in the process, I hope that with your help, I can raise my fundraising target for Cancer Council Tasmania, so that I can assist them in continuing their amazing work in the research, education and support they provide surrounding all cancers.


$158,000.


Welcome, and please, join my journey.

Hey Lewi, I’ve been following your journey for quite a while now and it’s been so exceptionally inspiring and entertaining. I’ve absolutely loved watching your Instagram stories after each hike, and it’s inspired me to start hiking some more myself. You’re doing such amazing work for such a great cause and I think you should be so so proud of what you’re doing. The reason I unfortunately can’t donate more is because I’m a year 12 student and so funds are a bit tight, as I’m sure you can imagine. But anyway, wanted to contribute regardless. Love your work Lewi, you’re a complete legend -Jasper
