40tude is an innovative and successful charitable organisation that is tackling colon cancer.

For non-smokers colon cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in the UK. One in 15 men and one in 20 women are at risk of developing this kind of cancer. But if identified early, it’s one of the easiest cancers to treat. 40tude recommends that you are screened regularly for colon cancer from your mid 40s, ideally with high-quality colonoscopy or CT colonography.

Since 40tude was founded in March 2011 we have raised over £1.4 million to support groundbreaking research at St. Mark's Hospital in north London, a world-leading hospital for bowel disorders. 40tude raises funds and promotes awareness of colon cancer via a series of events and physical challenges. So far these have included six Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) Marathons - a mass paddle over 26 miles on the River Thames - and nine cycle Challenges in Europe. We have also completed several Adventure Challenges comprising a winter summit of Mount Toubkal, climbing Mount Elgon in Uganda (4321m) and 100 kilometre treks across both the Sahara and the Wadi Rum in Jordan. Our supporters also take part in a range of personal challenges and sponsored events on behalf of 40tude throughout the year.

With your support, 40tude is investing in ground breaking medical research to better understand the causes of colon cancer and to increase the likelihood of early detection. Together we’re making a difference for the many people who are affected by this form of cancer and we aim to reduce the number of people seriously affected by this avoidable disease.
