These shocking stats are why the British Skin Foundation’s mission is to help find cures and treatments for 60% of Britons that will suffer from skin disease at some point during their lifetime.
We receive no statutory funding, so to continue funding high quality research we need your support. By taking part in this challenge, you will help us to improve the quality of life for those who have skin conditions, including skin cancer.
Be part of our team to fund more vital research. #GoTeamBSF
60% of British people currently suffer or have suffered with skin disease at some point in their life. So, we’re asking you to get moving and raise vital funds by either running, jogging or walking.

Regardless of your fitness level – this is the challenge for you! Whether you’re a fitness fanatic or you’re looking for a chance to exercise at your own pace the Summer 60 Challenge is accessible to all ages and abilities.
Your challenge can take place anytime between 1st July and 31st October 2021. Make sure you start the challenge by 2nd August to ensure you have enough time!
If you’re a fitness pro, why not up the miles or shorten the days?
To join the challenge, you’ll need to sign up to Give Penny and create your fundraising page. Give Penny works in the same way as fundraising platforms such as JustGiving – all the funds will come directly to the British Skin Foundation.
Give Penny comes with some cool features. Track your progress by connecting to Strava or Fitbit, but don’t worry if you don’t have either of these, you can upload your miles manually.
How to take part - step by step
In November, everyone who has completed the challenge and raised at least £100 will receive a BSF t-shirt and Summer 60 Challenge certificate.
Sign up to our Summer 60 Challenge today and help improve the lives of skin disease and skin cancer patients.
