Thousands of walkers descended on London Saturday night to raise money under the May moonlight for breast cancer causes – including our one and only Hazel Sweeney.
Finance Director Hazel was one of around 6,000 moonwalkers wearing glitzy costumes and donning the trademark bras of organising charity Walk the Walk as the original MoonWalk celebrated its 25th anniversary.
Joining in the party atmosphere under the stars, Hazel put on her trainers and her designer birthday bra to say thank you, celebrate the event’s quarter of century and raise awareness of breast cancer. Her marathon effort also raised £800 for Walk the Walk from generous donations given by her supporters.
Charities, including Tenovus Cancer Care, have been able to treat and support people affected by breast cancer because of almost £140 million raised by the MoonWalk since it started in1998.
We share the same vision as grant-awarding charity Walk the Walk in reaching people with breast cancer and providing advanced treatment closer to home. Grant funding totalling £800,000 awarded to us by the charity over the past decade has contributed to the build of our second and third Mobile Support Units, as well as supply a scalp cooler for people undergoing treatment for breast cancer.
Moonwalkers can either walk a Full Moon (26.2 miles) or a Half Moon (15.1m) as a team or solo. Starting at Clapham Common the course winds its way past London sites including Tower Bridge and the Albert Hall.
