• Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month - November 2018
  • November 2018

Do something active and take on pancreatic cancer!

In the UK, 24 people die from pancreatic cancer every day. Why not walk, run or ride 24 miles in November for a day, a week or a month. Set yourself a challenge, get your blood pumping and get your friends to sponsor you!


Some ideas that you could challenge yourself to this November:

Walk, run or cycle 24 miles in a month, week or day

Swim on 24 consecutive days

Do 24 push-ups every day in the month

Split 24 miles between yourself and some friends- jog one mile each to collectively reach your goal throughout November

Think outside the box! You can choose any fitness activity, any number of days or any distance. Why not get your friends or work colleagues involved?

How Hamish did it ...

Hamish took on the ‘Swim for Life’ .

Hamish Blair took moving it to a whole new level when he pulled on his wetsuit and took on the ultimate swimming challenge. In just four days, Hamish swam a whopping 24 kilometres - that’s further than the English Channel crossing. He did it an unheated, outdoor pool, with every stroke a test of his mental and physical stamina. Completing his last length on World Pancreatic Cancer Day, Hamish raised over £10,000 in memory of his father James, who died from pancreatic cancer in 2005.

Use Hamish as your motivation and take on a new challenge today!

The time has come – choose your way to take on pancreatic cancer and save lives
