Top Tips to having a great virtual Big Step Forward experience!

We'll walk physically apart but virtually together across the country, to fund pioneering research and stamp out pancreatic cancer.

Gather your friends and family to all sign up. You don’t have to be physically in the same place, to walk together. Join The Big Step Forward Facebook group to get all the support you need!

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

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

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

Join us live on Facebook throughout the day on 25th July, as we bring you entertainment and plenty of cheering support!

Take a moment of reflection during your walk, writing a personalised message and hanging it up somewhere special. Why not celebrate finishing the walk with a post-event picnic!

"Lynda was fortunate that the cancer was found early enough for her to have surgical treatment in January."

I wanted to do something to help others. We signed up to The Big Step Forward and roped in lots of friends. We all walked separately from each other on 16th May. It was so great to be able to do something all together, even if physically we had to be apart!
