Step Up for Stomas – The 7K Step Challenge


Our brand new stepping up for Stoma’s fundraising challenge is now OPEN for Registration!

Scroll down the page to register. 

The challenge commences on Friday 1st September and finishes on Saturday 7th October – which is Stoma Aware Day! This year’s challenge is to complete 7,000 steps a day for 37 days, that’s roughly 197km.

You can walk, run, jog, skip, dance, climb or even hop those 7,000 steps each day. It really doesn’t matter! You can do them on your own, or as part of a team and share the steps between you.

Your fundraising efforts…

…mean we can continue to support the many thousands of people round the UK before and after their stoma surgery. Thanks to people like you, we can keep on running our 24-hour Stoma Helpline, one-to-one befriending service, private Facebook group and Tidings magazine, support literature, Care Workshops and Active Ostomates programme!

Watch our challenge video and be inspired!
