Bra Image

Please note, that all information below currently relates to 2022!

We are back and can't wait... Join in the fun of the MoonWalk Scotland* night charity walk and experience Edinburgh like never before! Edinburgh turns pink to honour all MoonWalkers… Holyrood will never look so fine as The MoonWalk Scotland comes to town! 

A Walk the Walk hidden gem… the same energy, the same unique experience, just a wee bit smaller MoonWalk than its southern sister.

With 4 challenges on offer... 13.1 | 26.2 or 52.4 miles!

There really is a distance for everyone over the age of 10 and beyond… all whilst raising money and breast cancer awareness.

This year's theme is ‘Your Hero’! So whether you choose your favourite superhero, your childhood hero, or it could be that your mum is Your Hero... get creating and decorate ‘Your Hero’ bra.

What a wonderful way to pay tribute to those that inspire you the most... let your imagination run wild!

Every mile you walk, and every penny you raise will make a difference!

Walk with us… Raise money for us… together we can really make a difference!

Thanks for your support. Please see here for lots of questions and answers.

 

Where is the start and finish?

Travel and timings

Find out more here.

 

There is something missing from my pack. 

Please email [email protected]who will make sure you have everything.

 

I want to cancel my place. 

Please email [email protected]Have you thought about volunteering instead? You would be able to greet your teammates at the finish line!

 

Are there toilets and water en route?

Yes to both. They are available every 3 to 4 miles.

 

Are friends and family allowed inside MoonWalk City? 

Sadly not, the site is not large enough to accommodate friends and family unless they are volunteers.  If they are volunteering we can arrange for them to be at the Finish line to greet you.

 

Walk the Walk Covid Policy for MoonWalk Scotland  –  Updated 20/5/2022 

Whilst we are all pleased that Covid restrictions have been officially lifted, Covid has not gone away. It has now been left to individuals or organisers, as in the case of Walk the Walk and the MoonWalk, as to what are the best actions to take for the health and benefit of all attending the night. 

 

Walk the Walk has given this great consideration. In view of the nature of the event, and that many of those taking part could have little to no immunity and therefore vulnerable; in conjunction with NHS current advice (13/03/2022) we have revised our guidelines as listed below. 

 

It is worth pointing out that Walk the Walk have re structured The MoonWalk Scotland for this year, to ensure there is more space for each person, and as much space as possible whilst we gather. Read more here.

 

How do I Fundraise?

An online fundraising page will be automatically set-up when you register and for any offline fundraising you can download a Sponsor Form here (coming soon). Take a look at some ideas here or just get in touch... you may even get a call from us! Read more>

 

Can I download and print a paper Sponsor Form? 

Yes, please find it here.

 

Be a Hero, help us spread the word...

With the BIG night and day, if going Virtual, getting steadily closer, now is a fantastic time to contact your local media and whether you're Walking or Volunteering, tell them your story, and why you're doing The MoonWalk! You never know – you could inspire others to sign up too!

 

We’ve made it very easy for you - there’s a template email to send to local journalists, so read our blog here for some simple tips - Good luck and let us know how you get on!

 

Do I need to wear a bra?

Wearing a bra to take on a challenge has always been the Walk the Walk trademark and one of the wonderful reasons we have managed to raise so much awareness and money for our vital causes. We know just how much courage it takes, but it is also fantastic FUN! Within minutes of arriving at The MoonWalk, you will feel the spirit, energy and company of thousands of like-minded walkers at this carnival of colours, feathers, fringing and fabulousness… and if you do still feel a little self-conscious, then read on.

 

What is this year's bra decorating theme?

For one night become 'Your Hero'! So whether you choose your favourite superhero, your childhood hero, or it could be that your mum is Your Hero... get creating and decorate ‘Your Hero’ bra.

 

What a wonderful way to pay tribute to those that inspire you the most... let your imagination run wild!

  2. Let your team members know the team name, they can then head to our website and select the ‘Join Team’ option on the registration form
  3. Once the Team Leader has registered, before they pay, they can choose to register another person. You can then enter the rest of your team members and pay for them, but you will need each person’s details.

Yes! Just choose your option on entry and make sure everyone joins the team!

All about fundraising...

100 - We ask that everyone who enters The MoonWalk commits to raising a minimum of £100.

 

£100.00 is a very achievable amount of money to raise and can make a real difference to the lives of people living with breast and other cancers.

 

Over the past 20 months, Covid -19 has had a devastating impact of isolation, delayed treatments, anxiety and fear for those living with cancer, as well as the many as yet undiagnosed, that is leading to a dramatic increase in later diagnosis, and untreatable cancers.

 

Raising awareness by taking part in the MoonWalk, and raising precious funds are both really important at this time and we thank you for all your support!

 

Here are a few ways to help you reach that magic number!

  • Share your online page with friends and family. 
  • Exchange your time for donations e.g. walking your neighbour’s dog, washing cars.
  • Give something up for sponsorship! Go without your favourite treats for a month. Chocolate, alcohol, cake? Can you manage it?

 

Tops Tips to boost your fundraising page!

 

An Online Fundraising page will be set up on registration... so make the most of it!

  1. Make sure you upload a photo of yourself, so your friends and family can see it’s you!
  2. Tell your story! Why are you taking part? Many people walk in memory of someone dear to them, or you could be celebrating your all clear! Or getting a little bit fitter!
  3. Make a reasonable size donation first yourself as this sets the standard for those to follow. You make a £25 donation – many will follow you and donate the same amount.
  4. Update your page with progress. So, those new trainers, click and post; that soggy training walk; click and post; your decorated bra, click and post! You get the idea!
  5. Share your post regularly – every time you update it, share it, so everyone can see your progress and commitment! No need to ask for donations, your page will do it for you!
  6. Say thank you! Every time someone supports you be sure to say thank you so they feel appreciated and loved!
  7. Share! Share! Share!

What happens on the night?

Lots of information will be coming soon!

 

What do I wear?

So that we all look the part in this amazing thousands-strong team and so you are as comfortable as possible we will add a link here with suggestions closer to the MoonWalk.

 

Can I leave a bag?

More information on this coming soon!

 

Eating and drinking

Plenty of water will be available at MoonWalk City and along the route. Once you cross the Finish Line, you will be able to purchase some hot food and drink if you wish.

 

What happens if I don't complete my chosen challenge?

Sadly, there are some people that for many different reasons do not manage to cross the Finish Line. Whilst we have the utmost admiration and congratulate everybody for entering the challenge, we can not give medals to non-finishers as it would diminish the value to those people that do complete the course, sometimes against the odds - after all, completion is part of the challenge! 

Looking for more information?

More information is available here... please note these are being continually updated!
