Make your Steps matter and raise vital funds to support Jo’s and help us be there for more women and their families affected by cell changes and cervical cancer.

Steps for Jo's logoEvent information

  • Date: Any month in 2022
  • Location: Anywhere! Your local park or your front room, wherever you want. 
  • Registration fee: Free! 
  • Sponsorship target: £150

Make your Steps count.  Take 220,000 steps and help to raise vital funds to support Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust. 

Why 220,000? Because 220,000 women and people with a cervix will be told every year that they have cervical cell changes. You can walk, jog, run, skip or dance to achieve your steps – anything! However you reach them, you will be helping Jo’s to support everyone affected by cervical cancer and cell changes. 

What is Steps for Jo’s? 

Steps for Jo’s is our annual sponsored walk, jog or run. It’s a virtual event which means you choose the time and a place that suits you to complete the challenge.

Steps for Jo'sHow your Steps will support Jo’s

  • £50 could fund our Ask the Expert service for a day, providing expert information to those who need it most
  • £100 will provide initial virtual training to 3 Helpline volunteers who will then go on to support hundreds of callers through difficult times
  • £250 could allow 50 people to join our online Forum, where they can make vital connections with others going through a similar experience, ask their questions and get support from someone who understands. 

Over the past two years, demand for our services has grown and our financial situation was very difficult. We’ve only been able to be here because of people like you. 

Our incredible Steps for Jo’s fundraisers raised the amount needed so that we could answer 817 calls to our Helpline. It’s also enabled us to support a 17% increase in the number of new users posting on our Forum. Your help in 2022 will enable us to continue supporting people through a cervical cancer or cervical cell changes diagnosis.
