Take a step.
Take a moment.
Take a stand.

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. 

On Saturday 13th July, people up and down the country will be taking steps to transform the future for those affected by pancreatic cancer.  

Choose a route that means 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.   

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

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

Inspiring stories from some of our heroes

Julie

"I decided to do The Big Step Forward because I wanted to do something to mark the anniversary of my Whipple’s operation. My Whipple’s was on July 13th 2021 and a year later, I walked with my husband, daughter, eldest grandson, and some friends. We walked five miles from Newlyn to Marazion, along the coast. It was quite emotional taking part in The Big Step Forward 2022. I was really quite proud of myself when I got to the five-mile mark. It felt good to raise some money and awareness. I would say to anyone considering taking part that it really is a great sense of achievement when you’ve done it. It felt so great to be able to do something normal again, while also spreading awareness and raising money for such a worthy cause.”

Sharon and family

"When my dad passed from pancreatic cancer, he was only 57 and missed meeting his first grandchild by 6 weeks. Since then, we've done The Big Step Forward every year. We do a different route that honours dad each year. The Big Step Forward connects Erin to her grandad. She didn't get to meet him, so this is such a great way to pay tribute to him. It is honestly so rewarding, and the community is so lovely. In total, we've raised over £2,000."

Lynne and Anne

"We took part in The Big Step Forward and loved feeling part of a big event, with people across the country taking part. The support team were wonderful about keeping in touch and providing lots of encouragement and useful information. We had a lot of fun and so many good conversations with people about pancreatic cancer and the charity. Together, we raised £6,228”
