To raise millions for cancer charities, one CEO will trek across the South Pole: ‘A risk worth taking’

Many people are willing to go to great lengths for the causes they care about so passionately.

One of those people is Lance Kawaguchi, CEO of Australia’s Cure Brain Cancer Foundation. He’s gearing up to trek across Antarctica to the center of the South Pole to raise money for cancer charities.

Kawaguchi, who grew up in Hawaii and today lives in Sydney, Australia, first got involved in cancer charity after his mother, longtime schoolteacher Katherine Kawaguchi, passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2016.

“Anything you do has inherent risk, but if the opportunity or the upside outweighs the downside, it might be a risk worth taking,” Kawaguchi added.

People can make donations to each cancer charity at southpoletrek4cancer.org/partners.
