Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland. Every year more than 3,700 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer in Scotland and around 1,600 people die from the disease. However, bowel cancer is preventable, in fact scientists believe that around half of all bowel cancers could be prevented by having a healthier lifestyle. Evidence shows that being more active is one of the ways that you can reduce your risk of bowel cancer and Bowel Cancer UK would like to invite you to join us in a five mile walk to show support for those undergoing treatment, remember loved ones and help stop people dying from bowel cancer.
On Sunday 1 September we will be holding our annual Walk Together event in the heart of Edinburgh, walking a picturesque route along the Water of Leigh and the Royal Botanic Garden.
Registrations are now open by going to
If you can’t make the date, you can organise your own Walk Together event somewhere special in your local area. It’s easy to do and our team will be there to support you every step of the way. For more information contact Emma.Boffey@bowelcanceruk.org.uk
Our vision is a future where nobody dies of bowel cancer but we can’t achieve this alone, join us for Walk Together this
