Mass fundraiser will hold physical and virtual events
MoonWalk Scotland will be back this year for the first time since 2019, raising money and awareness for those living with breast and other cancers.
This iconic fundraising event on Saturday, 11 June is organised by grant-making breast cancer charity Walk the Walk.
For the first time ever, the Virtual MoonWalk Scotland will kick off the day, followed by walkers picking up the baton and pounding through the streets of Edinburgh after midnight.
While the cheer and unity of all those taking part will tickle the capital pink, they will be joined in spirit by many others across the UK, and the world, helping to make a real difference to the lives of people living with breast and other cancers.
Having both a physical and a virtual challenge means there is something for everyone to take on a challenge of their choice, in a location of their choice.
Nina Barough CBE, founder and chief Executive of Walk the Walk, said:“I am absolutely thrilled that The MoonWalk Scotland is back and for the first time in two years bringing people together again.
“This iconic, joyful event creates such an amazing feeling across Edinburgh, filling the streets of the city with colour and fun. Covid has had a devastating impact on those living with cancer and while our ability to raise funds has been very limited, we have continued to make smaller grants to charities that really needed help. It is so important that people do come together to take part, not only is every step a healthy one for the participant, it will be making a difference to those who need help now.
“We all need something to look forward to, so with the live and virtual options, it means that friends and family can unite in the cause wherever they are, but choose the option that suits them. And in true Walk the Walk style if many people do their little bit, we can do so much!”
