The one where you are not allowed to run!
Walk the Walk came into being 19 years ago when just 13 women Power Walked the New York City Marathon in their bras to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. What started out as a one-off fundraising event, has blossomed into a thriving multi-million pound charity, raising to date in excess of £99 million for vital breast cancer causes.
The MoonWalk is one of London’s most-loved nights of the year. It isn’t just another walk in the park ... this unique and wonderful night not only brings together women and men from across the globe to unite in a single challenge of Power Walking a Marathon (26.2miles) or Half Marathon (13.1 + 2miles) around the capital city, but EVERYONE will be wearing a decorated bra with this year’s theme, ‘Saturday Night at the Movies’!
So pick your favourite film star, whether you are Marilyn Monroe or Minnie Mouse, Pretty Woman or Princess Leia, James Dean or James Bond and for one night only experience the glamour of the big screen as bras fill the streets of London!
If the marathon sounds quite daunting, the moonwalk is a great way to start with the rule ‘walking no running!’
People from the age of 13 years old can take part, so why not get a group of school friends and their families together and come and join in the night of walking fun!
Walk the walk against breast cancer and help raise the £6 million target on this one night.
