Event Information

Welcome to The Big Step Forward Challenge! 

On the 16th July 2022, people up and down the country will be taking steps to transform the future for people affected by pancreatic cancer. Setting out from a location of your choice, you can choose to walk 1 or 4 miles; whatever your ability or experience.

After you've registered, we'll send you an event pack in July, including a welcome letter, sponsorship form and dedication bib. On top of this you can also order our free fundraising materials from our website.

Please note we're asking all participants to raise £20 by the 26th June to recieve a Big Step Forward branded t-shirt with the event pack. Unfortunately we won't be able to offer these to people who were sent one last year. You can buy additional t-shirts for £7.50 each at our online shop. 

*Please note registrations made after 26th June may not receive their event pack before the event, due to delivery times.

Whether you, a friend or family member are affected by the disease now, or you're remembering someone you've lost, we can stand together to save lives in the future. 

Every step you take will support world-leading researchers to speed up diagnosis and improve treatments, transforming the future for the 10,500 people who are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer every year in the UK. Research breakthroughs give us hope and will save lives. The funds you raise will have the power to make that possible. 

Take a step. Take a moment. Take a stand

We suggest that everyone walks 1 or 4 miles, but you can choose whatever distance you want.

3. Choose your walk route

Choose a walking route which is special to you and that you can easily get to on the day.


4. Get fundraising

We're here to support you with your fundraising from the moment you sign up; providing all the tips and tools you'll need.

5. Join the live Facebook community on 16th July

Join us live in the Facebook group throughout the day on 16th July, as we bring you entertainment and plenty of cheering support!

6. Complete your walk and celebrate

No doubt you'll want to take a moment of reflection during your walk, but afterwards why not celebrate finishing the walk with a post-event picnic or pub lunch!
