Take on a challenging trek


Pam's story

"And it did challenge us in so many different ways – it was physically, mentally and emotionally challenging. It was heartwarming to witness how we all supported one another every step of the way."

Challenge yourself with one of our treks in the UK or abroad. Sign up today, and help us to improve early diagnosis and treatment for women with ovarian cancer. 

If your ideal event isn't listed 

Please visit the take on your own challenge page for ideas on how to find other challenges across the UK and overseas, or to let us know that you have your own place in an event and would like to fundraise for us. If you need any help or have any queries, please contact us.

We also have our very own Target Ovarian Cancer Strava Club. Strava is a great fitness app which you can use to track your training progress and fitness. Join our group to connect with, and get to know your fellow Target Ovarian Cancer challengers, see how each other are getting on, share training and fundraising successes, or even arrange to train together. 

Transform the futures of more than 25,000 women in the UK who are living with ovarian cancer by signing for three or more fundraising events within 12 months. You could combine a local running event with a summer party for friends and family, with joining hundreds of others at The Ovarian Cancer Walk|Run!

Whichever events you choose, if you can complete three in one year, we will send you a special TAKE OVAR medal and certificate to mark your achievement!
