Walk the Walk Charity event

Local Woking Charity Walk the Walk is holding another event in Battersea this July to raise awareness of breast cancer; their press release says:


Organised by breast cancer charity Walk the Walk, this wonderful family challenge will be returning to Battersea Park on Sunday 1st July 2012, following the success of The SunWalk London 2011 when a fantastic £250,000 was raised for vital breast cancer causes.

People can choose to complete a Half Marathon, 10k or 5k and what makes this challenge special is that anybody can do it no matter their fitness levels and abilities. Walk the Walk is offering one free child place for every adult that enters, so there really is no excuse not to get the whole family involved!!

Walk the Walk events are infamous for the spectacle of thousands of breast cancer fundraisers Power Walking through the streets of London and Edinburgh at The MoonWalks in brightly decorated bras …….. The SunWalk London is no different! In true Walk the Walk style all participants aged 13 and over, will be wearing brightly decorated bras… with the theme of “Tropical” the charity are looking forward to some exciting and exotic creations.

Nina Barough, founder and Chief Executive of Walk the Walk Worldwide says

So, even if you have never taken part in anything like this before, take this opportunity to sign up to the challenge and help make a difference.
