The MoonWalk, organised by the charity ‘Walk the Walk’, has been held annually for the past 15 years, raising money for vital breast cancer causes. The event sees thousands of people take to the streets of the capital to raise money for this worthy cause.

Clare took part in this year’s walk with eight team members who completed the full marathon in eight hours. Commenting on her experience, Clare said:

“I have never attempted anything like this before but I entered because it is such a good cause: I hadn’t anticipated how challenging the walk would be.

“It was a very enjoyable event, the atmosphere was incredible. However, at the 20 mile mark I could start to feel the blisters. After the event, I couldn’t walk properly for a week!”

Clare’s team entered the event for family reasons and raised a total of £2,000. The event has so far raised over £7 million.
