How to take part

You can take on the challenge in any way that suits you. You could walk, run, hop, or skip, and if that’s not possible for you, convert the steps into distance. 10,000 steps a day is equivalent to about 5 miles (or 8 km). We want this challenge to be flexible to suit you, so we welcome anyone to sign up to help beat cancer.

The ultimate challenge for a healthy lifestyle

With Walk All Over Cancer, you're in control and just getting out of the house for some exercise can do us the world of good. There are huge health benefits when you commit to 10,000 steps a day.

  • Exercise can improve fitness

Regular walking can help you maintain a healthy weight, burn calories and help tone muscles.

  • Exercise is good for our mental health

It’s the perfect way to zone-out and rid yourself of any daily stress. Plus, the exercise-induced endorphins will leave you feeling better than ever.

  • Exercise can help lower blood pressure

Being active can help lower blood pressure and your risk of heart problems in the future.
