Breast Cancer Awareness Moonwalk 2007

Walk the Walk LogoOn Saturday 19th May the streets of London will be filled with hundreds of Moonwalkers wearing decorated bras raising money for breast cancer. The walkers will be taking part in the London Midnight Moonwalk that has raised millions of pounds for the charity over the last few years.

The Moonwalk idea was founded by a lady called Nina Barough in 1996, she power walked the New York City marathon in a decorated bra to raise money and awareness of breast cancer. Since then, thousands of people have joined her and the Midnight Moonwalk is an extremely successful event. Both men and women take part and many compete to have the best dressed bra!

Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in the UK – almost 42,000 people are diagnosed every year, mainly women but some men as well. Although it is too late to enter the Midnight Moonwalk you can still pledge money, see the official Moonwalk website for all the details of the event and how you can help.
