The long-awaited 24th MoonWalk London is back for the first time since 2019! Organised by grant-making breast cancer charity Walk the Walk, the event on Saturday 14th May sees a “Live” and “Virtual” version taking place on the same day, for the first time ever.

Thousands of women and men wearing brightly decorated bras, inspired by this year’s theme “Your Hero”, will take to the streets of London at Midnight, raising money and awareness for breast cancer. They will be joined by many others across the UK and the world, helping to make a real difference to the lives of people living with breast and other cancers.

Having both an in-person and virtual event widens the choice for people to take part in a challenge of their choice, in a location of their choice.

Nina Barough CBE, Founder and Chief Executive of Walk the Walk said;
“I cannot express just how exciting it is for Walk the Walk to finally be launching the MoonWalk London 2022, our first LIVE fundraising experience in more than two years. Even more exciting, we have decided to offer a Virtual daytime option, alongside our LIVE in-person night-time MoonWalk. This means that everyone has a choice, but together, thousands of people across the UK and indeed the world will be uniting to raise money and awareness for those with breast and other cancers. This is a MoonWalking weekend extravaganza not to be missed, we just can’t wait to welcome everyone, so, grab your trainers and sign up now, it’s going to be amazing!”
