Step Out!

Step Out for Breakthrough Breast Cancer

Organising and taking part in a walk is a great way to have a fun day in the big outdoors with family and friends. If you Step Out! with Breakthrough Breast Cancer, it’s also a fantastic way to raise money for our charity. Whether it’s an autumn hike in the countryside, a summer stroll through your town, an indoor treadmill challenge or a sponsored walk to school, every step you take will take us a step closer to beating breast cancer for good.

Stepping out is simple. Exactly where your walk takes you and who comes is completely up to you. You just choose a route, invite everyone you know, pull on your boots and get walking. We will support you every step of the way.

Hints and tips to get you started

  • If you live in the countryside, explore a new trail or footpath. Your local Ramblers Association can give you some good ideas for routes.
  • Get some pedometers and see which of your friends, family or colleagues can walk the furthest in a week.
  • Leave the car at home and walk to work or school and be sponsored to get fit.
  • Combine a walk with things you enjoy. Why not ask your golf club to arrange a pink walking and golfing day?
  • Nature trails make great walks for kids or a fun day out for the family. Just remember the binoculars!

Step by step your walk will take us closer to the ultimate breakthrough – beating breast cancer once and for all. Thank you for your support.

For the past six years I’ve organised an annual walk. It started small, with just friends and family, but has really grown, especially since we posted it on Breakthrough’s Walk Finder. Lots of people from the community come along to take part every year.
