Walk in Her Name Step Challenge, March 2022
This March in Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, we want you to Walk In Her Name and take a step for every incredible woman dealing with ovarian cancer. Take 295,000 steps throughout March (around 10,000 steps a day) and raise £295 to power faster progress through life saving research, to make ovarian cancer a survivable disease.
And let's do it together - create a team with your family, friends and colleagues, proudly supporting the women we all love.
Why 295,000 steps?
Every year, 295,000 women around the world are diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Behind every number you’ll find a mum, a wife, a partner, a sister, a grandmother, an auntie, a friend, a colleague. Someone we’ve laughed with in the best of times and held each other tightly in the worst of times.
For every woman diagnosed, approximately only half of the women will survive beyond five years, changing the future for families and friends everywhere.
So, this March, walk for yourself, for a woman you love and for every woman affected by ovarian cancer and we can make ovarian cancer a survivable disease.
