Last year we had the privilege of providing some of our lovely organic fruit to participants of Walk The Walk’s MoonWalk – an overnight marathon through some of London’s most famous landmarks (you can even read more about our Charlotte’s experience of the night here). Not content with sitting on our laurels this year, for 2019 we’re going bigger and better, partnering with the organic-enthusiast breast cancer charity once again in support of their London Moonwalk.
As you may have seen in our Boxing Day email, that’s where you come in, veg fans! We’re building a super-size team of our own Veg HQ staff and customers to participate in The MoonWalk London 2019 for the half or full marathon, and we want you to get stuck in and walk the walk with us through the night. Meeting on Clapham Common on May the 11th, we’ll have our own warm-up area and even be on hand with some of our delicious organic fruit-fuel to keep everyone going through the night! Of course, if walking isn’t your thing, we’ll also need volunteers to cheer us on and keep everyone hydrated.
So who are Walk the Walk?
The charity was founded by Nina Barough, who in the mid-90s awoke one morning with the idea to Power Walk the New York City Marathon in decorated bras to raise money for a good cause. Her dream became a reality, and after much training and fundraising (which she’d never done before), 13 courageous women took to the New York street’s in their bras raising over £25,000 towards the building of the first dedicated centre for research into breast cancer. The success continued with a smaller team within the London marathon years later, from which the MoonWalk as its own event would eventually be born.
