Steps for Jo's

Make your Steps matter! During Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month (September), set yourself a challenge to complete over 9 days and raise money to help us be there for everyone affected by cervical cancer. 

9 day challengeWhy 9 days? 9 people are diagnosed with cervical cancer every single day. You can help us make this number a statistic of the past by making your Steps matter!

 Your challenge could be anything – here are just a few ideas:

  • Walk 9000 steps a day for 9 days
  • Run a marathon over 9 days
  • Cycle 9 miles a day for 9 days
  • Do 9 press-ups a day for 9 days

The possibilities are endless!

 

What is Steps for Jo's?

Steps for Jo's is our sponsored walk, jog or run. 

You choose the place and a time that suits you. In your garden, the street where you live or your local park, wherever you take your steps, you’ll be helping us to support more people affected by cervical cancer.

Whether you take part with family, friends, neighbours, colleagues or take on the challenge yourself, your steps will be helping us to make a difference to everyone affected by cervical cancer.
