Challenge yourself to walk the 10 or 20 mile tailor-made route at the Pink Ribbon Walk in the Cotswolds, on Saturday 18 May, or in the Peak District on Saturday 15 June. Each participant will be cheered across the finish line, and will receive a complimentary hot meal, massage and medal after completing the route.
Money raised will help to keep Breast Cancer Care’s vital services free, so the charity can continue to provide care, support and information for anyone affected by breast cancer. These funds will help the charity provide a range of services, including specialist nurses, local face-to-face services and a vital online support network.
Breast Cancer Care’s Pink Ribbon Walk Manager, Preena Mistry, said: “Together, we can provide support for today and hope for the future. We’ll support you with every step while you do something amazing for people going through one of the toughest challenges they’ll ever face – breast cancer.
“We’ve got everything covered on the route from snack stations and toilets to trained guides, so you can focus on enjoying the scenery. We’ll be there to cheer you across the finish line where you’ll receive a complimentary hot meal, massage and that all important medal to commemorate your achievement.”
Petrina Brealy (above), of Devon, has taken part in the Breast Cancer Care Pink Ribbon Walk for many years and is taking part again this year. She said: “The sight of a pink ribbon of people stretching out through the countryside is an inspiration. I was so proud to have clocked up 10 miles at the end and be cheered in by the Breast Cancer Care team. My husband Stu and I feel really proud to be giving a bit back to a cause that has given us so much already.”
