Fundraising Flower Power @ The MoonWalk London

Our amazing MoonWalk TeamWe have done it! Our MoonWalk London team has completed the 26.2 mile full marathon challenge!

Thank you so much for all your support – it’s amazing to think how many of you have become part of our team by making and donating your fabulous flowers. Not only did the flowers keep us warm, but your thoughts and good luck wishes were there to power us on through the nights wind and rain.

Would you like to see some photos?

Just before we left another 72 beautiful flowers arrived.

With our MoonWalk bras already decorated, bum bag and hats were given the flower treatment!

At Clapham Common (the start point) we were greeted by a huge tent  – a kind of marshmallow fairytale castle with turrets and flags.

Inside were seventeen thousand MoonWalkers. Wow!

Our team has raised nearly £1,200 for Walk the Walk which will be used to fund various project for the fight against breast cancer – thank you so much to everyone who has so kindly and generously donated.

As  “Pink starters” our team was one of the last to leave – it was well after midnight before we were able to take our first MoonWalk steps.

As you can imagine, with so many MoonWalkers taking part, there were a few bottle necks on the bridges and narrow paths – although the first 3 miles took us an hour and a half it did provide a great photo opportunity to capture the sea of  MoonWalker hats!

The route took us around some of London’s iconic sites,….. The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben….

….The London Eye and The Albert Memorial (opposite The Royal Albert Hall). It was fantastic to see them lit us and the sky lighten as the dawn broke. The MoonWalk volunteers were fantastic, as well as seeing us across main roads their words of encouragement gave us all a much-needed lift.

My favourite sites were the 26 mile marker and finish line!

This just leaves me one more thing to say – THANK YOU!

This is for you.
