Teaming up to fight breast cancer in Scotland!

Walk the Walk is celebrating a brand new partnership with two fantastic Scottish charities – Paths for All and Young Scot.

Walk the Walk is celebrating a brand new partnership with two fantastic Scottish charities – Paths for All and Young Scot.  We’re delighted that the Scottish Health Secretary Shona Robison has endorsed the partnership and she met up with some of our MoonWalkers, and supporters of Paths for All and Young Scot at the Scottish Parliament yesterday.  Both charities had designed a gorgeous bra for the occasion. What a wonderful way to celebrate The MoonWalk Scotland’s 10th birthday!

Nina Barough CBE, Founder and Chief Executive of Walk the Walk said:

“I am thrilled that in this the 10th Anniversary year of The MoonWalk Scotland, these two wonderful organisations Paths for All and Young Scot are uniting with us to help encourage people of all ages in Scotland to get fit and at the same time raising money and awareness in the fight against breast cancer. To have the continued support of The Health Secretary, Shona Robison, is such a fantastic endorsement of the difference that Walk the Walk is continuing to make in Scotland both in keeping people active and by the grants that we make to improve the lives of those living with cancer.”

Ian Findlay, Chief Officer of Paths for All said:

“We’re delighted to partner with Walk the Walk to promote this amazing event which unites people in walking for a brilliant cause. It is great to work with Walk the Walk to raise funds, but also to highlight the importance of being active for our health. Indeed, 30 minutes of daily physical activity, such as walking can reduce your risk of developing breast cancer and is a gentle way for those in recovery to stay active. It is brilliant to see the The MoonWalk have shorter walks such as The New Moon, so that more people can take part in this fabulous event. Look out for the Paths for All team enjoying the fun on the night!”

David McNeill, Entitlements and Rewards Director at Young Scot, said:
“Hundreds of young people and their families are affected by breast cancer every year and we know it’s a topic that many hold close to their hearts. We are delighted to be involved in the 10th Anniversary event and support and encourage young people to participate in The MoonWalk Scotland by offering Young Scot Reward points. It’s a great way to meet other people, have fun, and enjoy the health benefits of walking – we wish everyone the best of luck!”
