Walk with us, on our charity walks challenge

On average, a nurse completes 15,000 steps a day. That’s around 7.5 miles or 12km.

Will you Walk With Us by completing 15,000 steps in one day, or the equivalent distance, to help our specialist nurses and support teams be there for young people with cancer?

Charity walks your way

Taking part in our charity walks is simple – do it your way! Do whatever you can to clock up your steps. Take on Walk With Us alone or make it competitive and get a group of family, friends or colleagues together. Who will have the highest count at the end of the day?

Why support Teenage Cancer Trust

We create world class cancer services for young people in the UK, providing life-changing care and support so young people don’t have to face cancer alone.

Every day, seven young people aged 13-24 hear the words “you have cancer”. They will each need specialised nursing care and support to get them through the toughest times they may have faced.

We’re the only UK charity dedicated to meeting this vital need. By choosing to run for Teenage Cancer Trust, you can help us to reach every young person facing cancer and make a huge difference.

So you know we’re the real deal, these are our registered charity details: 1062559 (England & Wales), SC039757 (Scotland).
