Breast cancer remains a significant health concern in Australia, with devastating statistics underscoring the urgency to take action. More than 3,200 people in the country are projected to lose their lives to breast cancer this year. Furthermore, 57 patients receive a breast cancer diagnosis daily, highlighting the critical need for research and support. It is a sobering fact that 1 in 7 women will face a breast cancer diagnosis in their lifetime, and approximately 1 in 600 men will also experience this life-altering condition. As Australia's leading not-for-profit national body funding game-changing breast cancer research, NBCF plays a vital role in advancing the understanding and treatment of breast cancer.
The 'Step Up to Breast Cancer' challenge is an inspiring initiative designed to encourage Australians to lead active lifestyles while supporting NBCF's mission. Participants are encouraged to complete 10,000 steps per day, contributing not only to their own well-being but also raising essential funds for breast cancer research. This virtual challenge allows individuals to complete their daily steps anywhere and at any time, empowering them to be part of this significant cause.
