Bra Image

You choose where and the distance... walk in your local park, your favourite place or even whilst on holiday... the choice is yours!

With 3 challenges... a location chosen by you, PLUS a distance for everyone!

Walkers coming together in spirit across the country and indeed the world and with one common goal, all by Walking the Walk during the day... WOW... what an incredible experience to share… and a formidable sight to see!

Our themes have been fabulous, from funky DISCO, roll up with the CIRCUS or Yee ha! fun taking you to the WILD WEST... pick your favourite theme from one of our previous years here, and add a sprinkle of silver... it's 25 years of MoonWalking after all!

Every mile you walk and every penny you raise will make a difference to those living with cancer.

Everything to do with teams

Please note: Teams are just for fundraising purposes only. If you are not fundraising together then no team is required.

 

How do we fundraise as a team


Before registering decide on a team name and a team leader. The Team leader registers first and creates the team. If you would like to join an existing team you can register by searching for the team name on the join team on the registration form.

 

Can I have a team taking part in the MoonWalk Virtual and MoonWalk Live?

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

 

Ways to enter your Team Members!

  1. After entering the team name, you can then enter the email addresses of your team and they will receive an email inviting them to join. They will need to pay for their own places and complete their registration.
  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.

 

Can I enter for someone else? 
Yes – you may make an online entry for each member of the team, provided that you have their permission to provide the required information (including their unique email address) and accept the terms and conditions on their behalf. 

 

Can some of us enter to virtually walk different distances?

Yes! You can have a team people walking the different distances for the Virtual MoonWalk

 

What is the fundraising target for a team?

We ask that everyone who enters The MoonWalk aims to raise a minimum of £100.

 

 I want to invite friends and family to join my team?

Fantastic! Already have a Team but want more to join in the fun?... Send your friends and family an invite by following these easy steps

 

Any further questions?

Please email us and we will be in touch.

All about the fundraising...

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

  • Update and share your online page with friends and family. 
  • Have a bake sale at work/school/church; in fact anywhere! Everyone loves cake!
  • Exchange your time for donations e.g. doing shopping, watering gardens, baby or dog-sitting etc
  • Give something up for sponsorship! Go without your favourite treats for a month. Chocolate, alcohol, cake? Can you manage it?
  • Organise an event such as a coffee morning or a quiz – easy to do and very popular!

 

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? And what are you doing? Many people walk in memory of someone dear to them, or you could be celebrating your all clear! Or just getting a little bit fitter!
  3. Make a reasonable size donation first yourself as this sets the standard for those to follow. If you make a £25 donation – many will follow you and donate the same amount.
  4. Update your page with your 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!

How will the miles be tracked?

Through Strava...

Strava is a free app to download, that uses GPS to record your distance walked... this can be automatically connected to your online fundraising page on entry. To check if you are logged in click on the three lines in the top right-hand corner. If you are not logged in then you can log in with your order number and email address.

 

How do I get it?

You can connect your Strava account when you create your online fundraising page or later on via the "Connect to Strava" button on your fundraising page, this will be visible when you are logged in.

 

IMPORTANT! Strava settings...

 

When you are completing your challenge miles, ensure Strava is set to 'Everyone' under activities so we can track your miles to show you have achieved your goal! 

This needs to be done before saving your walk. Please also ensure that the activity is set to ‘Walk’ rather than a ‘Run’ or ‘Hike’. (It will accept run and walk as a setting, as some walkers have it set as run, even tho walking for the reporting data).

 

Training walks will not be automatically be posted to your page but why not keep your supporters updated by uploading pics, mileage and sharing the fun you have been up to on your walks.

 

What if I can't or do not want to use Strava or want to use another device to track my distance?

 

If you are using a different measuring device please take a picture or a screenshot of your activity. Whilst you are logged into your fundraising page you can then add your walk as a manual activity to your page and add this photo to each activity... this must be done over the MoonWalk weekend. Click here for instructions for mobile upload or computer upload.

 

Alternatively, you can upload your distance photo here (link will be added closer to the MoonWalk). This must be received by Wednesday 24th May 2023.

 

Once we have notification your challenge is completed we will send an online certificate and your well deserved medal will follow in the post and should be with you by the end of June.
