Walking the Walk can save lives, raise awareness and get you fit, so what an opportunity to do something for yourself that will also benefit not only cancer patients today, but with research that we fund, the future health of us all. We are a grant making charity that raises money for vital breast cancer causes. We need your help to continue making a difference where it counts.

All you have to do is commit to getting a little bit fitter, taking on this irresistible and iconic challenge, and to raising a minimum of just £100.00... and with 2 different distances there is something for all abilities.

The challenge

Choose from Power Walking The Full Moon Marathon 26.2 miles or the Half Moon 13.1 plus 2 miles. With just a little bit of commitment and a big helping of enthusiasm anybody can take on The MoonWalk... and you get to see our wonderful capital city like never before!

The MoonWalk London may be walking, but should not be underestimated, like any challenge it does need preparation. There is plenty of advice and support throughout our website on how to prepare for this challenge and in particular the lead up to the final weeks. We want to make sure that you reach the Finish Line in great shape and smiling!

Because we know that you will be eager to get going you can take a look at a 4 week training plan and information on how to make the most of your fundraising page.

 

How we help you

In 2017 you will receive your 'Walker Pack' which will include a Sponsor Form, a Training Plan and all sorts of Information including how to Power Walk, fundraise and, most importantly, some really simple and easy-to-make lifestyle changes that could make a big difference to your overall health and well being!

And then... just a few weeks before the BIG night you will receive your 'Final Information Pack' which includes your: T-Shirt (exclusive to those taking on the challenge), Walk the Walk Cap, Space Blanket, Weather Protector, Walker Number and Bag Tag and, of course, your Bra – to decorate.

Plus... all the important stuff you will need to know for the night. You will be feasting on organic pasta and rice to keep you going, listening to some fantastic toe-tapping music and uniting in our celebration! There are plenty of toilets and water on the route and a team of smiling faces giving out medals to welcome you home!

Thank you to every one involved. Such a well run event and so many smiling faces out on the course- Sarah Baker-Attwood

We do it in bras!

Wearing bras is our unique trademark, the girls and, yes, the guys too, all Walk the Walk in decorated bras and whilst it is not the normal sight for a Saturday night in London, it is a vision to behold and one that succeeds in not only raising awareness but millions of pounds for us to grant to our benefiting causes. So be brave, get creative… and let’s glide down the pink carpet to the Finish Line!

"My 3rd and my friends 1st. Emotional and didn't think I'd make it past 10miles. So proud that we walked the whole night in just our bras. No blisters hoorah. The helpers could not have been more magnificent if they had tried. Thank you all" - Mandy Le Messurier Acmt
