Sign up for the £1k Challenge

In the UK, 1,000 people die from breast cancer every month. Most of those are from secondary breast cancer. And that’s 1,000 too many.  

This year, you can make a difference. Pledge to raise £1,000 to change the future of incurable secondary breast cancer.  

How? That’s totally up to you, but we’ll be on hand to help you reach your target in no time at all. From out-of-the-ordinary fundraising ideas and creative event materials to expert tips and support - we’ve got you covered.

Helen doing her £1k Challenge
My challenge is to walk 1,000 miles from 1 January through to 31 July with the support of some very good friends and my family who have been out with me almost the whole time. My advice would be to just get out and walk when you can. Or perhaps do something else, I know other have done things like squats or baking. So come on, we can do it together!
