As a result of Covid-19, cancer patients have had a rough time over the past months. Many cancer charities across the UK are on their knees as they try to survive, whilst finding ways of offering much needed front line support for those living with cancer, and those with symptoms, have been fearful to go to doctors or hospitals to get a diagnosis. Everyone is working together to try and turn this around, but as we go into the winter the future is looking uncertain and the demands on our grants will grow.

Normally, Walk the Walk would be holding many exciting events and challenges including its flagship event, The MoonWalk London which would raise in excess of £5 million in just one night!... but there is nothing normal about 2020 and this year we have no ‘live’ events and therefore very reduced fundraising.

At Walk the Walk we want to do what we can, so each month we are granting £20,000 in  Emergency Grants to where they can help to make a difference.

Help us now, buy a balloon or if you don't fancy taking part why not take this opportunity to make a donation to Walk the Walk to make a difference to those that really need it!

Tracking Balloons

The 25 leading balloons in the race can be seen 24/7 during the race. Check the weather each day here.

Information shown will include the straight-line distance travelled in kilometres from the launch point, plus the balloon’s latitude and longitude. The button [race leaders] is found in the top bar.

To locate and track your balloons, Sign-in and go to your dashboard. Click on any individual balloon to check its progress around the globe! 

Tactical ways to increase your chance of winning!

On your dashboard you can customise each balloon by changing various parameters, for example, balloon helium, content, shape of balloon and thickness of rubber.

And reflecting real life, virtual balloons, just like latex ones, can pop if the balloon parameters are not suited to the weather. For example, maximising helium content, having the fastest shape and thinnest rubber during stormy weather, is not advisable. So, looking at the predicted weather forecast for your race period prior to customisation can help your chances of winning!

The winner will be emailed with confirmation that they have won the race and also details of how to contact the organiser to arrange receiving their prize.

Up, up and away... 12 Noon - 20 November 2020

Balloon launch is from the 'Retina Hippo Watering Pool' in the heart of the Serengeti... they will race for 7 days... wherever the winds and weather take them... just imagine the stunning sights we are going to see!

Help us make our #WTWBalloon Race a huge success.... shout it from the rooftops, get everyone involved and help us make our next £20,000 Emergency Grant to front line cancer charities.

Winners and prizes!

The winning balloon is the one that has flown the furthest in the 7 days of the race.

The balloons are measured in a straight line from the launch location… but please note that a popped or burst balloon can still be a winner if the wind direction changes and sends the still-flying balloons in the reverse direction!

The winner will be emailed with confirmation that they have won the race and also details of how to contact the organiser to arrange receiving their prize.

Together we can help to make sure that front line cancer charities and services offering emotional and physical support for those living with cancer... are there for those that need it now!
