Team Oban

The Big Step Forward Virtual

We're fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer UK

Pancreatic cancer is close to home for Team Oban.

You may be aware that Adrian Beard has been recently diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer and we'd love to give him a boost by supporting Pancreatic Cancer UK - an excellent charity that is supporting him, his family and many others through their journey with this condition.

Both Adrian and Finlo have previously been affected by pancreatic cancer when each lost their mum to the disease within 6 months of each other. Pancreatic Cancer UK was an important source of information and support then as now.

That's why we're taking on the Big Step Forward - to stamp out Pancreatic Cancer.

Research breakthroughs give us hope and will save lives. The funds that we raise will have the power to make that possible. By walking together we can create change to save lives.

"It's so much easier for you to cope, if you decide to live in hope" - A. Horowitz

On 25th July, hundreds of people will come together virtually and walk together across the UK to fund pioneering research into pancreatic cancer.

In Oban we will walk around what we know as the Gallanach Loop (about 7km) and we will keep walking, loop after loop after loop for 24 hours. Each member of the team will do what they can but the team as a whole will keep this going for 24 hours.

It's a relatively small effort for a huge task - to transform the future for the 10,000 people who are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer every year in the UK.

Whether you, a friend or family member are affected by the disease now, or you're remembering someone you've lost, please do support our walk. You can either donate following the links on this page or contact Adrian and Finlo to join them in this challenge.

Thank you to our Sponsors
