Welcome to The Big Step Forward!
Taking place on Saturday 15 July 2023, The Big Step Forward is for walkers of all abilities who want to raise vital funds and awareness to transform the future of pancreatic cancer.
Join thousands of people up and down the country who are taking steps in their local area, to enable our nurses to continue to be there for those affected by pancreatic cancer now and fund research to detect early, treat better and transform care.
Whether you walk 1 mile, 4 miles or more, it's your challenge. There is no set distance or location, and you can choose a route that is meaningful to you. 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.

Ask your friends and family to walk with you or support you with a donation. We're all in this together!

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