- What is the Step Challenge
It’s a virtual step challenge where you complete 295,000 steps, one for every woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer globally each year. Walk, run, dance or jump your steps and record your progress on your online fundraising page. Get sponsored for your achievements, raise funds for the next generation of ovarian cancer research and save lives.
- How can I complete my 295,000 steps?
If you complete 10,000 steps a day, it's possible to reach 295,000 steps in one month. We have lots more ideas for you here. You can complete the 295,000 steps as a personal challenge, create a team and compete to see who achieves the most steps or combine your team’s efforts to collectively reach 295,000 steps.
- How much do I need to raise?
We’re asking you to aim to raise £295 to fund the next generation of ovarian cancer research, but anything you can raise will make a huge difference. If you raise £10 a day you will reach your target. We have lots of fundraising ideas for you.
