Our third ever Steps for CancerSupport Challenge raised over CHF100,000 in total to support ESCA CancerSupport’s vision that no one faces cancer alone.
Over 970 people, taking part in teams or as individuals, attempted to take 386 steps in 20 days to raise awareness and help us to continue offering all our services free of charge to anyone who needs them.
Stay tuned for Steps for CancerSupport 2023!
What is Steps for CancerSupport:
Steps for CancerSupport is a fitness and fundraising challenge, bringing together teams and individuals through exercise to raise critical funds that allow ESCA CancerSupport to provide free cancer support services to clients in Switzerland.
About the Challenge:
Every step, every day, everyone together.
Every year, over 19 million people worldwide are diagnosed with cancer*. Together we can help. We will take 19 million steps every day for 20 days to raise awareness and funds to make sure no one faces cancer alone.
*A note on the maths: The IARC estimates that 19.3 million people worldwide were diagnosed with cancer in 2020. 19.3 million steps for 20 days is 386 million steps total, our collective challenge goal.
How to get involved:
Whether you are an individual looking for extra motivation to reach your recommended 10,000 steps per day or a group doing team training for your next marathon, register for Steps for CancerSupport and make each step count for local cancer patients and their loved ones.
Given the changing Covid situation please refer to government advice while taking part in the Challenge and remember that teams can be virtual as well as in-person.
