Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer awareness month is a time to make some noise about this important cause and really help spread awareness.

Spread the Walk the Walk word this breast cancer awareness month! 

Breast Cancer Awareness month is all about just that, raising awareness about breast cancer. Let’s come together and continue to make a difference, not just in October but every month of the year.

Walk the Walk are dedicated to raising money and awareness for vital breast cancer causes. Taking on one of our Virtual or Walking Challenges helps you get fit, raises money for research, and to support those needing our help, both going through treatment and living with cancer.

Men Get Breast Cancer Too! Did you know that 370 - 400 men a year in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer? The diagnosis of breast cancer in men, as well as the treatment, is very similar to that for women. However, over 80 men a year die from breast cancer due to not knowing men can get this type of cancer, and not doing regular checks. Find out more about our Men Get Breast Cancer Too campaign
