What is Take Steps?

Take Steps is a new virtual walking campaign set up by the British Lung Foundation. The campaign aims to help people stay active during the coronavirus outbreak and help us to continue to be there with information and support for those with lung disease when they need it.

Take the challenge on by yourself throughout the month, or bring your team together for a socially distanced group walk - it's up to you how you want to do it!

Best of all, you can form a virtual team where your fundraising will be combined as an overall team goal!

You can help to support everyone with lung disease.

Either take on the challenge alone or use it as an opportunity to stay connected with friends, family and colleagues. Exercise and being in nature are vital in reducing stress, and are particularly important if you have a lung condition. We hope this virtual challenge will become a fun addition to your daily routine.

Our work is vital. During the pandemic we've seen record numbers of people come to us for advice and help. Calls to our Helpline nurses tripled. We were a lifeline for vulnerable people. But we need your support to help us continue to support those in need of our services.

The British Lung Foundation is the only charity looking after the millions of people in the UK with a lung condition, and the millions more at risk.

We give people hope through our research, looking for new treatments and cures. We campaign for better diagnosis, treatments and prevention and lobby the government to make lung health a priority. And we offer essential support through our Helpline and support groups. For further information, please visit www.blf.org.uk.
