Dear xxxxx,

I’m taking part in The MoonWalk London on Saturday 14th May, organised by breast cancer charity Walk the Walk. Thousands of women and men will be walking marathons through the streets of London at midnight, wearing brightly decorated bras.


You (and your team) and why you’re walking/volunteering

Where you live

What distance you’re doing

It would be fantastic if you could feature our story! I’m attaching some photos of our team.

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 holding our first LIVE fundraising experience in more than two years. The MoonWalk London 2022 is back with a WOW! and even more exciting is that we have decided to offer a Virtual daytime option. So, for those unable to get to the overnight experience in our Capital, our Virtual MoonWalkers will be leading the day by walking wherever they are in the world! It is just wonderful to see everyone gathering in true Walk the Walk style; women, men and our younger walkers all getting together to support and share this special LIVE or Virtual experience.

There is a very high demand for emotional and physical cancer support for those living and being diagnosed with cancer on a daily basis. This is such an important year and by coming together we can not only raise awareness, but precious funds which could really make a difference where it is needed now and needed most. This is a MoonWalking extravaganza weekend not to be missed!”

Looking forward to hearing from you. You can contact me on xxxxxxxxx


Good luck and let us know on social media how you get on!
