Join the national movement to make a big impact for pancreatic cancer.
May 1-31

In 2020, the traditional Put Your Foot Down walk format will evolve due to the impact of COVID-19 but getting outside and staying healthy, while making an impact for pancreatic cancer, has never been more important.

This year we launch the national #PutYourFootDownSolo campaign that asks our supporters across Australia to dress passionately in purple and track your steps over a distance that suits you during the month of May.

This campaign is about getting creative and walking around your local park, beach or neighbourhood, maintaining the safe 1.5m distance from others You can even set your team a step challenge in their own home or backyard!

Join the national movement and help advocate for more funding and action for pancreatic cancer. This is a way to unite and share your own story, providing hope for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

3,000 walkers nationally
8 States & territories Australia-wide
