Last year we held our first Step Up For Stomas campaign which saw us ask people to take 160,000 steps to raise funds for And awareness of Colostomy UK during the month of September. It was a brilliant success and we managed to raise over £50,000.

This year were running Step Up For Stomas again but this year its Step Up For Stomas The 39 Challenge!

Why the 39 Challenge?

Each year Step Up For Stomas is going to be based around a different number related to stomas. Last year it was take 160,000 steps, one for every person in the UK who has a stoma, and this year were going to be asking people to take non a challenge or activity based around the number 39 (or 3 and 9) because as you may have seen from our adverts in Tidings and social media, every 39 minutes someone in the UK has stoma surgery

The challenge will run for 39 days (September 1st to October 9th) but just like last year you can sign up and start planning and fundraising now!
