Every year, 19 million people around the world are diagnosed with cancer. In 2022, our aim is to walk 19 million steps every day for 20 days to show that we support an international community of people affected by cancer. Physical activity has been shown to reduce the possibility of relapses and recurrences of cancer.
To take part you can:
- Register as an Individual, Corporate Team, or Open Team
- Take steps every day to help us reach our goal of 386 million steps in 20 days
- Participate in the Fundraising Challenge and encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to donate to your team
- Anyone can make a donation and can be made here.
- Join us for our kickoff event March for CancerSupport
Registration for the challenge will be open from 1 March 2022 until 24 March 2022.
The Steps for CancerSupport Challenge will start Thursday 24 March and finish Tuesday 12 April at midnight CET.
How it works:
We are using the MyPacer app (www.mypacer.com) to track our collective and individual progress.
Once we have received your registration payment, we will send you instructions on how to download the app after 3 days. This allows our team time to set up your details in the app.
If you are entering a team, please add the names and email addresses of your team members in the registration form. If you do not know all the names and emails of your team members at the time of registration, you can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org before the Challenge starts on 24 March.
