A team of 24 local Billericay Women including a local GP, nurse, police officers, council workers, local business owners and lots of Mums are taking part virtually in the London Moonwalk MARATHON on Saturday the 14th of May. We will be taking to the local streets in our T shirts and bra’s 👙 to raise money for the breast cancer charity Walk the Walk and we would love to be featured as much as possible locally to help raise awareness and help our fundraising of course! I attach a selection of photos for you to use if you wish to feature us…and we would be happy to be a phone interview during an appropriate radio segment!
Warrior Women is a local fitness group started by me five years ago to improve women’s health and fitness and a number of our members have been directly affected by Breast Cancer and some of them are joining us on the day to walk the Marathon which is just amazing!
It shows that early detection, treatment and good support services can really make a difference to women and enable them to achieve all sorts of goals and health post diagnosis.
Some facts about the MoonWalk
- Walk the Walk has raised more than £134 million over the last 26 years
- Money is granted for research into breast cancer and to support frontline cancer charities
Nina Barough CBE, Founder and Chief Executive of Walk the Walk said;
“I cannot express just how exciting it is for Walk the Walk to finally be holding our first LIVE fundraising experience in more than two years. The MoonWalk London 2022 is back with a WOW! and even more exciting is that we have decided to offer a Virtual daytime option. So, for those unable to get to the overnight experience in our Capital, our Virtual MoonWalkers will be leading the day by walking wherever they are in the world! It is just wonderful to see everyone gathering in true Walk the Walk style; women, men and our younger walkers all getting together to support and share this special LIVE or Virtual experience.
There is a very high demand for emotional and physical cancer support for those living and being diagnosed with cancer on a daily basis. This is such an important year and by coming together we can not only raise awareness, but precious funds which could really make a difference where it is needed now and needed most. This is a MoonWalking extravaganza weekend not to be missed!”
