Happy Birthday MoonWalk Scotland!

Over the past 10 years almost 100 thousand Walkers have MoonWalked their way around glorious Edinburgh raising over £18 million... Walk the Walk has already invested  millions of pounds back into Scotland to help improve life for those living with cancer now. The past 10 years have been busy... we have worked with NHS Lothian to fund the renovation of the breast ward, mammography unit and built a new operating theatre at the Western General in Edinburgh.

We have worked closely with Maggie’s and granted millions of pounds to support the building of a new centre in Lanark, fund a centre for them at Gartnavel in Glasgow, and a centre in Forth Valley, which is about to be built. We feel very proud that Walk the Walk money has helped Maggie’s to provide their invaluable service to every area of Scotland, so that all cancer patients are within a 20 mile radius of a Maggie’s Centre.

And if that wasn’t enough we have also placed Scalp Cooling equipment in hospitals from as far north as Stornaway to the borders in the south. These wonderful machines are giving cancer patients the choice of successfully helping them to keep their hair whilst undergoing chemotherapy. Whilst it is not a life saving treatment, the impact for many of being able to keep their hair has a very positive effect on healing, recovery and the day to day impact of living with cancer.

We could not do any of these wonderful things without your help, we have plenty to celebrate, so were having a party!... The MoonWalk Scotland 2015 - June 13th - Inverleith Park, Edinburgh. Join us for The Mad Hatter's Midnight Tea Party

Taking part in The MoonWalk is me giving back a little to those who walked before me and who raised astounding amounts of money.Money raised has helped us develop our department into one where patients can feel looked after and in safe hands. This is really important. There is never a good place or a good time to hear that you’ve got breast cancer but having a facility like ours, thanks to the wonderful Walkers and Sponsors, it makes the start of the journey seem like one that’s achievable. We can all do so much if we all walk in the same direction!

Upon hearing that Walk The Walk were main contributors to the new Maggie’s at Forth Valley, Larbert I wanted to make 2015 a good year for me. This will be my third year doing The Full Moon in Edinburgh, seeing the sunrise and the disco bus is just amazing, so for me The Full Moon is the only option. I was privileged enough to be invited along to the groundbreaking of the new Maggie’s centre and found it a very humbling experience. Coming from Stirling area, where Walk The Walk isn't really heard of has made my fundraising so much easier this year, being able to tell people Walk The Walk have been the major contributors to the building being built means so much more to the people in our area for sure

Last year, when I was 12, I heard about the New Moon. I really wanted to take part. On the night everything made me feel so special, the atmosphere was so friendly and exciting. In Moonwalk City my mum and I got a massage, had some food, and danced until we began our journey through Edinburgh. I remember walking up towards the castle - it was lit up pink - and everything feeling so magical. I will treasure that memory.  I am over the moon to be taking part again in this amazing event this year! The New Moon is a simple, fun thing to raise money for something that is definitely not fun and simple
