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 2021
  • Location: Anywhere! 
  • Registration fee: Free! 
  • Sponsorship target: £220

We are calling on you to walk, jog or run 220,000 steps this June for Jo’s. 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 help us to be there for them when they need us.

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.

Please make sure that when you take your Steps you are adhering to government guidelines for your area.

How to get involved?

  1. Sign up 
  2. Fundraise! Set up your fundraising page and raise as much money as you can. Once you get £10 we will send you a free Jo’s branded t-shirt! 
  3. Complete your 220,000 steps throughout June
  4. Share your challenge across your social media using #StepsForJos. Below is a suggested post!

I’ve completed my 220,000 #StepsForJos, in support of the 220,000 women a year who are diagnosed with cell changes. Help @JoTrust support more people by donating, or take part and make your Steps matter: jostrust.org.uk/steps

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 allow 4 people to attend our annual Let’s Meet event, an informal information and support event for women and their loved ones. 
  • £220 will enable us to train 2 volunteers who will then go on to support hundreds of women through the helpline. 

Due to the pandemic we saw a surge in people using our services. Thanks to our incredible fundraisers taking Steps for Jo’s, the money raised helped us to connect over 2,000 calls to our Helpline, and support a 17% increase in the number of new users posting on our Forum. Your support will enable us to continue supporting those who need it when facing a cervical cancer or cervical cell changes diagnosis in the future.
