GRANT-making breast cancer charity Walk The Walk is delighted to announce two new and very exciting Power Walking challenges for The MoonWalk Edinburgh Scotland on June 8th this year.

And the event is also being held at a brand new venue – Leith Links.

Sign up for the ‘New Moon’ and you can join a huge sleepover. Not so much sleep, but you will be able to walk 6.6miles, or get a team of four together to complete a Marathon between you.

Best of all, whilst you wait for your turn to walk, you can snuggle up, eat popcorn and watch films in the charity’s huge pink tent. And if you’ve never taken place in a Marathon, this is a great place to start.

Or, if you’re looking for the next extreme challenge, then the ‘Over the Moon’ is for you – two MoonWalks back to back, covering a distance of 52.4miles!

Walk The Walk is still offering its famous ‘Half Moon’ (13.1miles) and ‘Full Moon’ (26.2miles) challenges, and all walkers uniting together to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.

Nina Barough, CBE, Founder and Chief Executive of Walk The Walk, said: “Anybody can do The MoonWalk. I have seen many women and men over the years commit to taking part, with no idea of how they are actually going to achieve it.
“Most of them have never done any regular exercise, let alone taken part in a Marathon.”

She continued: “It really is wonderful that with the support of thousands of people in Scotland, Walk The Walk has succeeded in raising more than £15million, making a huge difference to the lives of cancer patients across Scotland.

“We also know from the many thousands of letters we receive, that by taking part in The MoonWalk, we are helping people to become fitter and healthier, changing their lives for the better.”

All walkers over the age of 13 wear Walk The Walk’s trademark brightly decorated bras; and this year’s theme is ‘Psychedelic Extravaganza’, where the swinging 60s meets 2013!
