Why should you Take Steps?

Take Steps is more than just a walk - it's a way to give hope to everyone affected by lung disease.

In the UK, 1 in 5 of us is affected by lung conditions, from well-known conditions like asthma to life-limiting conditions like IPF and COPD.  But together, with your help, we can change this.

We're asking people to join us at our Take Steps walk in Dorking this June, where we're hoping to raise £15,000.

How your fundraising could change lives 

"I hope that by raising this money with my sponsored Take Steps walk, we will be just a little bit closer to finding a cure."

The money you raise will help us continue our research into treatments and cures, provide support and advice when it's needed most through our helpline, and help us campaign to improve air quality and make lung health in the UK a priority.

  • £60 could pay for a helpline nurse to answer calls for three hours
  • £300 could fund 10 hours of a lung disease study
  • £550 could help us to train a new BLF Active Instructor to provide safe and effective exercise classes for people with a lung condition
  • £5,500 could cover the costs of one of our research projects for a month, allowing us to invest in better prevention, treatment and cures for lung diseases

Whatever you raise will make a huge difference to our work.
