Active Digital signs up MoonWalk London 2023
Active Digital has entered a team this year in hope of raising as much money as possible for Walk the Walk. Karen, Alex and Jayne will be taking part in the walk and can’t wait to share their journey.
Over the years, nearly half a million women and men have taken to the streets in colourful decorated bras to raise much needed awareness and money, which is granted towards research, prevention and supporting those living with cancer now. In 2023, the MoonWalks will take place in London on Saturday 20th May at Clapham Common, in Iceland on Tuesday 13th June at Lake Myvatn and in Scotland on Saturday 9th September in Holyrood Park, Edinburgh.
This iconic trilogy starts with The MoonWalk London, the original night time fundraising walk. This year walkers can pick any theme from previous years to decorate their bra and add a sprinkle of silver to celebrate 25 years of MoonWalking. Walk the Walk came into being 1996 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 £100 million for vital breast cancer causes.
Your support is vitally important as breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in the UK. Most women diagnosed with breast cancer are over the age of 50, but younger women can also get breast cancer. About 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. There’s a good chance of recovery if it’s detected at an early stage.
Walkers can choose between half and full marathons, as well as a virtual option to take on the MoonWalk in their local area. Those looking to experience London and Scotland can enter both and receive a special 10% discount on entry. For the ultimate challenge take on the 3 Land Challenge and do all three MoonWalks. Our team will be kickstarting their training in January ready to walk the 26 miles, through the city of London guided by the moonlight!
Please help us help them by giving whatever you can using this link. The more people that know about Walk the Walk, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.
Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means so much.
Good luck to all the Active Digital team. We can’t wait to share some photos of their charity MoonWalk!
