Get ready for 'Step up for 30' in 2020. It’s really easy to get involved, just get sponsored to do 30 minutes of physical activity every day for 30 days. Register your interest today.
Physical activity doesn’t just have to be about working out in a gym. You could walk, swim, dance, run, cycle, do yoga – the choice is yours! Choose the activity and the intensity to suit you.
The great thing about this challenge is you can do it wherever and whenever you like to fit into your daily routine!
Your support will help Bowel Cancer UK to fund vital services and life-saving research.
There’s lots of creative ways you can get active during the month - doing squats while the kettle boils, taking the stairs rather than the lift, going for a walk during your lunch break, getting off the bus a stop early or even hoola-hooping during the TV adverts!
By committing to 30 minutes of exercise each day you’re taking on an amazing challenge, so make sure you tell everyone you know and don’t forget to ask for sponsorship.
Use your free Step up for 30 calendar along with your fitness tracker (optional) to share your progress.
"I make sure to fit in a workout wherever I can. Whether that’s a ten minute brisk walk to the shops, a quickstep whilst the kettle boils or a 15 minute more intense cardio session, it all adds up. That’s why I'm supporting Bowel Cancer UK’s Step up for 30 challenge. It’s a great way to get fit and discover types of exercise you love doing.”
“When I first started to exercise, it felt very daunting. So I started off with walking and then those ten minute walks turned into runs and later on they were marathons. Start small and then build your way up.”
“Both my wife and I are aware of bowel cancer and make sure to take our screening tests when they arrive every two years, but we also try and make lifestyle choices that lower our risk of developing bowel cancer. Exercise is obviously a huge part of my life but knowing the massive effect that just 30 minutes of exercise a day can have on my long term health, is a great extra motivator.”
“I’ve been a runner for many years and cancer was not going to stop me. It’s not how you exercise, it’s the fact that you make the effort that will have a positive impact.” Step up for 30 2018 supporter, Cristina

Beating bowel cancer together
Increasingly affecting those in their 20s and 30s, over 16,000 people in the UK die of Bowel cancer annually making it the UK’s second biggest cancer killer.
Bowel Cancer UK provides support to improve the quality of life for patients and their families, but it is a preventable and curable disease, so their ultimate vision is to save all lives through research, campaigns and education.
Just £25 raised could help campaign for improvements to the screening programme or £50 can help improve surgical techniques for bowel cancer patients.
