About March the Month

March the Month is a virtual step challenge for anyone who wants to keep active and help beat prostate cancer. Whether you’re walking or wheeling, take on 11,000 steps a day throughout September for more than 11,000 men who die every year.

We know it's a tough challenge but the great news is you can do it however YOU want to. Set your own step goal and work towards your personal challenge.

Share your challenge to spread the word and raise awareness of the most common cancer in men. Every penny you raise will help fund lifesaving research to stop prostate cancer damaging bodies and lives.

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 raise vital funds and awareness of the disease, Katherine and Graham signed up to March the Month to help save more lives.

Katherine says, "Graham found out he had prostate cancer in 2017 and he was only 47. We discovered Prostate Cancer UK online and through his Specialist Nurses at the hospital. We've been fundraising ever since and encouraging younger men to understand their own risk."

"Graham runs regularly, so he can easily clock up the 11,000 steps a day for March the Month. Working full time, I spread walks through the day. I walk before work, at lunchtime and in the evening, and our old beagle Poppy joins for one very slow walk every day. If the weather is shocking, we’re marching circuits around the house!”

“We love the March the Month Facebook group too. Many of the members have become friends, it feels like we have known them a lifetime. I would encourage anyone to get involved and post your thoughts, struggles and milestones along the way."
