MoonWalkers share their experience

Whether you have chosen The Moonwalk London or The MoonWalk Scotland... get ready for one of the best nights of your life! See what some of our Walkers and Volunteers had to say!

Sandra Ironside at The MoonWalk Scotland - A nurse at the Lorn and Islands Hospital“I really enjoy keeping myself fit by walking, and the atmosphere with the huge crowds at the event is indescribable. Most importantly, I take part because I have seen first-hand what the scalp coolers mean to our patients.”

 

Bryan Thorn at The MoonWalk London –“It was my wife who discovered The MoonWalk when she was searching for a fundraising activity for us both to do. Events like The MoonWalk are vital in funding life-saving work to help prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.We both loved The MoonWalk – from the training, to the event itself, it was such a positive experience. We raised £2,500 for Walk the Walk, and we’re ready to sign-up for next year’s event. I wore a very pink frilly bra which was surprisingly comfortable!”

Elizabeth Grubb, New Mooner at The MoonWalk Scotland -
“My first MoonWalk experience was wonderful – I walked in my bra with huge joy, just celebrating life! It was a clear night and the stars and the moon were just dazzling up at Arthur’s Seat.The second time I did the New Moon, the weather wasn’t so good and it rained most of the night. Luckily, I had a light-up bra on which flashed under my poncho. I remember seeing the whole city in front of me – I wanted to put my arms out and run and shout as I felt so well and so happy, but I knew I couldn’t run as I would be disqualified!”

 Ali Chan at The MoonWalk London-
“I can now say I’ve taken part in the Moonwalk as a MoonWalker and as a Volunteer. Both are super rewarding in many ways. Most importantly, the event will not take place without either of them. Volunteering is so much fun. Just one evening of your time to do something rewarding, refreshing and something to give back to the community.”  

 

Louise Dunn at Over the Moon Ultra Challenge at The MoonWalk Scotland -
“I’ve seen parts of Edinburgh in the last five years that I never saw in the 50 years before that.I love to hear the birds, smell the winter jasmine, watch ducklings and cygnets grow. All of these things you don’t notice on a bus or in the car.”

Yin Cheung at The MoonWalk London –“I’d just finished chemo and signing up for The MoonWalk gave me a focus. I lost a lot of my “chemo weight” when I was training and I felt really proud of myself when I finished it – I still wear my Finishers T-shirt in the gym!”
