Dear xxxxx,

I’m taking part in The MoonWalk Scotland on Saturday 11th June, organised by breast cancer charity Walk the Walk. Hundreds of women and men will be taking on walking challenges through the streets of Edinburgh at midnight, wearing brightly decorated bras.


You (and your team) and why you’re Walking/Volunteering

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 am so thrilled that The MoonWalk Scotland is back for the first time since 2019 - this iconic challenge, now in its 15th year, brings colour, fun and such an amazing feeling to Edinburgh. This year, people also have the opportunity join our Virtual daytime option and walk wherever they are in the world, making it an even more exciting MoonWalk weekend, for those who cannot get to the LIVE experience.

Aside from all the fun that comes with MoonWalking, there is an urgent need to raise funds to help those living with cancer and those being diagnosed on a daily basis. Covid has had a devastating impact on cancer treatments in Scotland, with significantly later diagnosis adding to the loneliness, isolation and fear which people are feeling, causing a very high demand for emotional and physical support services.

This is such an important year for all of us to recover,  by coming together we know what a difference MoonWalk supporters can make, not only by raising awareness that anyone can get breast cancer,  but by also raising precious funds which are needed now”.  

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


Good luck!

Why not encourage a friend or family member to Walk or Volunteer at The MoonWalk Scotland on 11-12 June?
