BOTH my wife and I are aware of bowel cancer and make sure to take our screening tests when they arrive every two years, but we also try and make lifestyle choices that lower our risk of developing bowel cancer.

Exercise is obviously a huge part of my life but knowing the massive effect that just 30 minutes of exercise a day can have on my long term health, is a great extra motivator.

That’s why I’m supporting Bowel Cancer UK’s latest fundraising challenge, Step up for 30, to encourage the nation to get sponsored to do 30 minutes of physical activity every day for 30 days in June.

Every 30 minutes someone dies of bowel cancer in the UK.

Sign up to Step up for 30 and help ensure a future where nobody dies of bowel cancer: bowelcanceruk.
