Help raise money and awareness for breast cancer research.

11th May 2013
What is the MoonWalk?
MoonWalk is an annual event, organised by Walk the Walk in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer, attracted 8,000 bra-clad women walking through the night to raise money through sponsorship.
Where and when did it take place?
This year the MoonWalk took place on 11th May 2013 in London.
History of the MoonWalk
The charity was founded by Nina Barough who at that time had a styling and production business. Nina woke up one morning with what seemed a brilliant idea - to power walk the New York marathon in decorated bras to raise money for breast cancer. What makes this story so incredible is that Nina at that time had no experience whatsoever of fund raising, power walking or taking part in a marathon nor did she know anyone who had been affected by breast cancer. In November 1996 the dream became a reality when 13 women took to the streets of New York in decorated bras. Although the main idea was to have fun..it resulted in raising over £25,000 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
It is hard to believe that Walk the Walk has only been an official charity for such a short time. Nina, has managed to turn a simple idea into a dynamic charity which promotes healthy eating and lifestyle and at the same time raises significant funds for breast cancer research and care. Nina's passion for healthy eating and exercise has inspired many others, in fact the MoonWalk is often described as a life-changing event by those who take part. Many men and women who have never power walked or been involved in any sort of fitness before are becoming ardent walkers. It appears that Walk the Walk is achieving its goal of making people more aware and making them responsible for their health whilst having fun.
The Walk-to-Walk motto is to raise money, raise awareness, get fit and have fun!

Or maybe you are a night person, and it is easy for you to be enthusiastic and encouraging when people need it the most!
They can not guarantee specific jobs, but the more they know about you the better they can figure out, whether you have the talents that could be put to use on the night.
Donate a night for breast cancer and join the volunteers at The MoonWalk.
Walk the Walk came into being six years ago when just 13 women power walked The New York Marathon in their bras to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research. What started out as a once only fundraising event, has blossomed into a thriving charity raising to date in excess of £12 million for breast cancer research and cancer care.
