60 Miles in April

60 Miles in April - fundraise for pancreatic cancer action

Join thousands of people this April to raise pancreatic cancer awareness and participate in 60 Miles in April for Pancreatic Cancer Action.

We’re calling on you to take on the challenge of walking, jogging, and running 60 Miles in memory as a personal challenge or just to raise money for a great cause.

We’re looking forward to bringing together a community of people determined to make a difference to the survival rate of pancreatic cancer. Why? Because every day 26 people die from this disease, and it is only through early diagnosis we can bring that number down, we need your help to do it.

Be part of 60 Miles in April and join a movement to help ensure more people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer early and in time for surgery, giving them a much higher chance of survival.

What does Pancreatic Cancer Action Do? 

  • Healthcare professionals have a vital part to play in the early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, which is why we provide free resources for GPs, pharmacists and pancreatic cancer specialists. 
  • We provide free patient information for those diagnosed and living with pancreatic cancer. 
  • Increase public awareness of pancreatic cancer. Currently, awareness is very low, with half of all patients having not heard of the disease before their own diagnosis.
