Put Your Foot Down and make a real impact for pancreatic cancer

Location Details

Peppercorn Lawn, Alexandra Gardens, Melbourne (Opposite the boatsheds)

Please join us for the Put Your Foot Down Melbourne walk which is one of our biggest around Australia, connecting the local community to make a big impact for pancreatic cancer.

The centrally located event is a great day out raising awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer with family, friends and colleagues, walking for a great cause along the Yarra River and through central Melbourne.

Help us make this walk the biggest ever so get your purple outfits ready and join the national movement in 2023 to help advocate for more funding and action for pancreatic cancer.

Fundraise for people living with pancreatic cancer

Fundraising fuels medical research which is critical to improving outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. Your fundraising efforts provide hope to those impacted by the disease and drive our ongoing research program, providing Australia’s best researchers an opportunity to work towards a possible future without pancreatic cancer. Fundraising is also easy and lots of fun!
