#Breathtember – Join our New Challenge

Would you like to help people living with pulmonary fibrosis by walking 11,000 steps a day?

Sign up for this year’s #Breathtember challenge?! 

Steptember for #Breathtember

September is Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Month – we call it #Breathtember.  Thanks to you, Breathing Matters is now in its 11th year.

We are calling for our supporters, friends and families to walk 11,000 steps a day and raise money and awareness for pulmonary fibrosis during the whole month of September – anywhere and anytime you choose.  11,000 steps a day reflects 11 years of Breathing Matters’ support for the pulmonary fibrosis community.

Make every #Breathtember step count:

  • Step up your fitness – Help work off that summer ice-cream and cocktail weight. A 2019 study in JAMA Internal Medicine found that women who took 4,400 steps per day had lower mortality rates than women who took 2,700 steps per day. 
  • Step up your fundraising – Set up a Justgiving Page from our home page.  Collect donations from your family and friends to help motivate you further in your Steptember for #Breathtember challenge.  Read our fundraising tips to give you handy hints.
  • Step up awareness – TWEET about your challenge using the hashtag #Breathtember to raise much needed awareness of this little known yet fatal disease. Visit our online shop and BUY one of our t-shirts, hoodies or water bottles to help spread the word.

Every supporter will get a medal on completing the Steptember for #Breathtember challenge.  It’s only £15 to register and any supporter who raises more than £50 for pulmonary fibrosis will be entered into a prize draw!
