The event

Welcome to The Big Step Forward!

On Saturday 13th July, or a date that works for you, join thousands of incredible people up and down the country who will be taking steps to transform the future for those affected by pancreatic cancer. 

Choose a route that means the most to you - there’s no set distance or location. And wherever you walk, you’ll be standing together with an amazing community, supporting everyone affected by this terrible disease.   

It’s unacceptable that more than half of people diagnosed with the deadliest common cancer die within three months. That’s why they need and deserve more. More research, more funding, more breakthroughs. More than hope.

Every step you take will enable our nurses to continue to be there for those affected by pancreatic cancer now and could fund research to detect early, treat better and save lives.  

The funds you raise could have the power to make that possible.
