Registration for 2024 Now Open!

Interested in joining us for Steps for Cancer Support 2024? Registration is officially open! Registration is open from February 1 to April 18. The Fundraising Challenge also starts February 1 for teams who want to step up their fundraising. Click on our “Register” button or keep scrolling to learn more about the event.

What is it?

Steps for Cancer Support is a fitness and fundraising challenge held each May. For 20 days, participants join us in our virtual event space in the Pacer app to track their steps and share photos of their experiences, from all around the world. Donations are given in the form of registration fees, fundraising projects, and one-time gifts. Each donation aids us in providing support to anyone affected by cancer. Every team (and individuals participating without a team) can compete to have the highest step count or the highest fundraising amount. However, every step counts towards our event goal and every donation makes a difference. Awards are given to the top teams in each category in June at our Centre.


How does it work?

First, participants register as an Open Team, Corporate Team, or as an Individual. Each team can consist of 2-10 members stepping from anywhere in the world. Corporate Teams benefit from brand exposure. As a team-building exercise, it can also help colleagues improve their relationships. Email us at for more information on how you can get your company involved.

Next, everyone tracks their progress through the Pacer app for 20 days starting on May 2 2024 and ending on May 21. Each participant and team is listed by their total (accumulative) step count in the app and also in our Stepper’s Space. It’s a competition for glory but also a time to beat personal step goals. The challenge is open to all, regardless of fitness level, who are at least 16 years old on day 1 of the challenge.

How can I help fundraise?

Participants can fundraise by hosting an event, finding a personal sponsor, or simply encouraging friends and family to donate! Each participant can download a Fundraising Pack complete with ideas, tips, and graphics to share on social media. Top fundraisers will be listed under their team names for the Fundraising Challenge on our event donations page. Every Swiss Franc counts! Donations help us keep all of our services at Cancer Support Switzerland free of charge to anyone affected by cancer.
