Your challenge. Your way.

Because asthma’s challenging enough.

Are you up to the challenge?

There are currently 5.4 million people in the UK with asthma. So we're asking you to pledge how many steps you can walk throughout the month of October to help us reach our target of 5.4 million steps – one step for every person with asthma in the UK.

How does your money help?

Asthma UK supports all people affected by asthma, through our research, information and services. All money raised through The Asthma UK Step Challenge will help us stop asthma attacks and, ultimately, cure asthma by funding world leading research and scientists, campaigning for change and supporting people with asthma to reduce their risk of a potentially life-threatening asthma attack.

You will also help us to continue providing services like the nurse helpline which provides vital information and emotional support for people living with asthma. Every donation counts and helps people with asthma. For further information about Asthma UK's work and how to get involved visit
