About March the Month

Join thousands of people, across the nation, committing themselves to walk or wheel 11,000 steps a day throughout September. It’s free to sign up and take part and is a challenge everyone can get involved in.

Simply, Sign up to take on March the Month and help raise lifesaving funds, get active and walk your way.

Why 11,000 steps?

More than 11,000 dads, brothers, grandads, partners and mates die from prostate cancer every year. By taking on March the Month, you can help increase awareness, raise lifesaving funds and ultimately save men’s lives.

We're suggesting you raise a minimum of £200 - but you can aim higher to make an even bigger difference for men and their families.

Whether you’re a rookie rambler or a seasoned stroller, get involved and do it your way. Why not try:

  • Going on a daily morning walk
  • Switching up your commute
  • Hitting the gym
  • Racking them up walking around the house.

You'll never feel like you're marching alone with support and encouragement from our thriving community of marchers. Take on the challenge solo or in a team and track and share your progress using JustGiving's easy logging system. Watch your steps stack up and the donations rush in.

Event Accessibility

March the Month is a challenge everyone can get involved in. If you want to take on more or less than the 11,000, steps you can adapt this goal to suit you. Set your own step goal on your JustGiving page and work towards that each day of September.

If you’re a wheelchair user, you can track distance instead of steps. Five miles is roughly equivalent to 11,000 steps.

For more details about accessibility, please get in touch with our team who’ll be happy to support you in taking on the challenge.

The money you raise by taking part in March the Month will fund lifesaving research and support services for men and their families affected by the disease, like Katherine and Graham.

On a mission to continue raising vital funds and awareness of the disease, Katherine and Graham have signed up once again to March the Month to help save more lives.

Katherine says, “This March the Month is significant for both me and Graham as four years ago, Graham had surgery to remove his prostate. As always, we’ll be taking on this challenge together, using this time to reflect on what we’ve both been through and what we’ve got to look forward to, like our 30th wedding anniversary.

“Thankfully Graham is now doing well and Prostate Cancer UK played a huge part in supporting us through Graham’s prostate cancer journey, so taking part in March the Month is our way of helping to raise funds for the charity and awareness of the disease. I would encourage others to walk alongside me and Graham and help stop prostate cancer being a killer.”
