Breast cancer charity, Walk the Walk, is calling on women and men across the UK and beyond, to propel themselves into the next decade by signing up for The MoonWalk London 2020.

Back for the 23rd year, the iconic night-time event will see thousands of women and men walking through the Capital City at Midnight on Saturday 16th May 2020. With a futuristic ‘Out of this World’ theme, Walkers will don decorated bras in celebration of the new era - expect robots, spaceships, cyborgs and all things extraordinary!

Entries for The MoonWalk London 2020 are now open and participants have the choice of either a Half (13.1+2 miles) or Full Marathon (26.2 miles).

Expect the sky to turn a magnificent shade of pink as many of London’s famous landmarks light up pink in honour of everyone uniting against breast cancer.

The MoonWalk London raises millions of pounds in one night to help fight breast cancer. Walk the Walk’s aim is that by 2050 nobody should die from breast cancer and funds raised from the event will help fund more research to make this aim a reality.

Walk the Walk has raised more than £132 million since 1996, with the money also granted to help improve the lives of those living with cancer now.
