    Story

    The Meban Family tackle 2 million steps to raise funds for NIPANC

    Despite being separated by countries and COVID restrictions, the Meban family have managed to stay in contact over the past year through regular Zoom quizzes and virtual birthday celebrations. However, we want to (quite literally) step up efforts to stay connected through a collaborative charity challenge.

    Brian and Siobhan in Portaferry, Meghan and Jonny in Ballymena, Ruairi and Jill in Essex, Anna and Jack in Belfast, Declan in Cumbria, and Bethany in Brussels are going to walk a combined 2 million steps (or approximately 1000 miles) throughout April to raise funds for Northern Ireland Pancreatic Cancer (NIPANC).

    Pancreatic cancer is a major health issue for Northern Ireland and sadly, only 1% of those diagnosed will reach 10-year survival.

    As a charity, NIPANC increases public understanding of pancreatic cancer, promotes awareness of the signs and symptoms to both medical professionals and members of the public, funds vital research, and supports patients and their families.

    Please help by donating or sharing this page to raise funds and awareness. We will keep you up to date with our progress but we’re a competitive bunch so hopefully should have no problem hitting our steps target.

      So here we are, at the end of our challenge. As a family, we walked 2,311,773 steps! We are delighted to have raised £2,640 to support NIPANC. Thank you for all the donations. We’ve loved our weekly catch ups together to discuss our walks and input to the step counting spreadsheet. We celebrated this Sunday with Jonny and Sophia’s birthday, and Declan even brought a surprise guest along to support the cause! We will be closing the page tonight, so there is still time to donate. Thank you all again. The Mebans xxx

      This is just phenomenal - thank you all! We would really love to push this number up as much as possible over this upcoming week, to donate the most we possible can to help NIPANC. So far, as a family, we have walked over 1.9million steps. Our step challenge is fully on target for this Friday - we won't let you down!

      We've really enjoyed this challenge so far in an effort to raise funds and awareness for NIPANC. Our Sunday catch up call was used to talk about the great places and sunny weather we have seen this week, and also to share some funny stories of our families first walks and trips together. Thank you to all the wonderful people who have donated to the fundraiser and for all the very kind words. We finish our challenge this Friday 30th April, and we will keep this page live for donations until Monday 3rd May. Stay safe. The Mebans xxx
