Virtual Steps for Jo’s was launched in 2019, the 20th anniversary of Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust. It’s a sponsored 5k or 10K walk, jog or run. The virtual event was launched so that anyone can take part in the event no matter where they live. It helps us to raise vital funds for our work; however it is also an opportunity to remember those who have lost their lives.
Virtual Steps for Jo’s can take place whenever is suitable for you. You choose when and where and just let us know. Send us a photo once you’ve logged your 5k or 10k and we will send you your medal!
Once you have registered online you can join our Facebook group. Set up a fundraising page and spread the word to let people know what you are doing. Then run, walk or jog 5km or 10km! Once you have completed the walk/run just send us a photo of your logged activity or post it into the Facebook Group and we will send out your Steps for Jo’s medal!
Anyone! Take on the challenge by yourself, get a group of friends together or get your colleagues involved and walk/run as part of team. You don’t have to do it all in one day, you can even spread the distance across a few days.
We ask for participants to raise £120 each. Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust relies on donations to be able to continue with our services and information, supporting people affected by cervical cancer. The fundraising team are here to help you every step of the way from the moment you sign up until after the event. Get in touch by emailing [email protected] for ideas and any help you may need.
Steps for Jo’s is designed to be a challenge that everyone can take part in so the level of training you do before the event is up to you! It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done anything like this before or if you’re an experience walker or runner. We’ll be there to support you every step of the way and if you would like some tips and ideas for your training check out ‘NHS couch to 5k’ and ‘healthy eating’.
We have a range of materials available to help you with your fundraising. We can send you a fundraising pack in the post or you can see more of our resources here with lots of helpful tips.
We also have t-shirts and a range of merchandise available so you can step out in style! For more information on our fundraising resources please visit our resource centre.
Literally every penny helps Jo’s to continue to provide our services and information to support people affected by cervical cancer.
5K is just over 3 miles. A 5K walk usually takes between 40-50 minutes but you can go at your own pace and take all the time you need. You may like to have a leisurely walk with your family or perhaps you want to try and get your best time!
Yes, once you have posted your completed 5km or 10km in the Facebook group or emailed to the fundraising team your medal will be posted out to you. Delivery may take up to 10 working days.
