Take Action in 2019!
Whether you want to raise awareness or fundraise, or aren’t quite sure how you want to get involved with PCA this year; there’re plenty of fun and exciting opportunities to take part in in 2019! Here are just a few:
Pyjamas for PanCan
We are asking our supporters up and down the country to put on their pyjamas and say goodnight to pancreatic cancer; the cancer that has been kept in the dark for too long! Will you join us on the 16th April 2019 and wear your Pyjamas for PanCan?
Take part at work, at school, or even with just friends and family!
Share your story with People of PanCan
Sharing your story can be a powerful way to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer and offer support to those who might be facing something similar. We invite anyone and everyone to share their experience of pancreatic cancer, whether you’re a current patient, a friend, a family member, or even a healthcare professional.
Striding for Survival
On Saturday 1st June 2019, returning for its 6th year, our annual flagship event, Striding for Survival is taking place in the beautiful grounds of Virginia Water. This event brings together people affected by pancreatic cancer. Whether you’re remembering a loved one lost to the disease or supporting somebody currently fighting it, come along to help us raise funds and awareness, we would love to see you there!
Cotswold Way Challenge
Join us this summer and walk through the picturesque hills and idyllic villages that make the Cotswold Way. With a choice of a 100km, 50km or 25km challenges, the Cotswold Way Challenge offers something for everyone!
Pedal 4 Cancer
On Sunday 8th September 2019, as Gold Charity Partners with this fun-filled cycling event we are offering you a new cycle challenge! Pedal 4 Cancer is a 60-mile bike ride (not a race!) from London to Cambridge.
ZipWorld Velocity 2
If you want to give yourself a truly unique experience, then look no further! ZipWorld Velocity 2 is Europe’s longest and the world’s fastest zip wire! On Sunday 27th October 2019, we are giving you the opportunity to visit Penrhyn Quarry, near the stunning Snowdon Mountain range in North Wales, the home of Velocity 2.
Royal Parks Half Marathon
Race day involves so much more than just a run through central London. There will be a host of activities and attractions on show within the food and fitness area to keep your friends and family entertained whilst they wait to cheer you across the finish line!
All year round!
Hold an awareness stand
Raise awareness all year round by holding an awareness stand, booking a workplace talk or booking a talk for your local community.
Become a Media Volunteer
If a media opportunity arises in your local area, or the press are looking for someone to share their story, we can contact you and see if you would like to take part. You can always say no if you change your mind!
