Catch up on the latest news from The MoonWalk Scotland

This year we are celebrating 20 years of Walking the Walk, so in true Scottish style we are having a Ceilidh... this is going to be a night to remember!

Spring is in the air

Time to shed a few winter layers and get out walking. So what better time to update you all on Walk the Walk activity in Scotland!

And… with that thought in mind… have you signed up yet for The MoonWalk Scotland? You can do the Half (13.1 miles), the Full Marathon (26.2 miles) or, if you want to go for something a little shorter try, the New Moon just 6.55 miles and open to all over the age of 10 years. Plus this year we are celebrating 20 years of Walking the Walk, so in true Scottish style we are having a Ceilidh... this is going to be a night to remember!

Good news on our Grants!

As the principle funder of the new Maggie's Centre at Forth Valley, I am delighted to report that it is expected to officially open this summer, which will be wonderful news for those in the local community.  As any of you who have had cause to use a Maggie's Centre know, they are really an invaluable part of recovery and the journey through cancer. We are very proud to have  granted funds to not only build Forth Valley, but also Gartnaval in Glasgow and part of the Lanarkshire Centre. Without your fundraising this would not have been possible! The picture below shows the work in progress.

Whilst on the subject of grants, 55 Scalp Coolers have now been placed in 25 hospitals across Scotland,with the latest delivered to Mid Argyle Community Hospital… fantastic that we are able to now help so many cancer patients keep their hair on, so to speak!

We feel honoured!

Following our 10 year Celebration, I am very proud to share that the Lord Provost held a Civic Reception this week in honour and recognition of all that has been achieved by Walk the Walk and The MoonWalk in Scotland. Many of our supporters and Volunteers from all over Scotland gathered to share this very special evening.

Well that's it for now, don't forget to sign up for The MoonWalk either as a Walker or a much needed Volunteer, because without everybody's help, we could not do any of the wonderful things that we do!

Love walking  Love life!

Thank you for uniting with us against breast cancer
