A GROUP of fundraisers from Denbighshire are set to take part in a marathon like no other to raise money for a breast cancer charity this weekend.

Sharon Jones, Lian Jones, Jane Humphries and Caroline Humphries, dubbed Team Space Girls and from Denbigh and Towyn, will take on the first Virtual MoonWalk London on Saturday (May 15) in aid of Walk the Walk.

Thousands of walkers from towns and villages across the UK and indeed the world, will be Power Walking 6.55 miles/ 13.1 miles/ 26.2 miles/ 52.4 miles and together raising £1 million for cancer causes.

The MoonWalkers will all be wearing the unique Walk the Walk ‘Bra and creating an inspirational movement all across the country.

Team Space Girls will be walking 26.2 miles - starting at Abergele's Grwych Castle, through Towyn, Prestatyn to Dyserth, Rhuddlan, Bodelwyddan and Cefn before ending in St Asaph.

The group has so far raised £808 for the charity.

Sharon Jones said: "After signing up in 2019 to participate in the London Moonwalk 2020, the time is finally here!

"On Saturday 15th May 2021, Team ‘Space Girls” Sharon Jones, Lian Jones, Jane Humphries and Caroline Humphries will walk 26.2 miles as part of the Virtual London Moonwalk around our local area of Conwy and Denbighshire’s beautiful coast and countryside. We hope to raise as much awareness and funds for the breast cancer charity as possible, a charity close to our hearts.

"If you see us on the day please give us a beep or a wave to show us your support and encouragement, you won’t miss us - we will be wearing the Walk the Walk trademark hand decorated ‘Out of this World’ themed bras!"

Lian Jones added: "Breast cancer awareness and fundraising is a cause close to our hearts as our mum/nannie died of breast cancer in 2005. We have family members and friends who are survivors of breast cancer due to the ongoing research and treatment made possible through fundraising.

Nina Barough, Founder and Chief Executive of Walk the Walk, organisers of the MoonWalk said: “Due to the continuing uncertainty caused by Covid-19, and given that many of our fundraisers and supporters are in a high risk group, Walk the Walk has taken the decision for the health and safety of all its supporters and fundraisers to create the first Virtual MoonWalk London experience.

"Our mission is to not only create a unique, fun and wonderful event that unites people in energy and spirit, but by coming together we want to raise £1 million of much needed funds. Due to the devastating impact that Covid-19 has had on those living with cancer, this will allow us to continue providing vital support where it is needed most, to frontline cancer services. We know that many people doing a little bit can be a powerful force - so let’s generate that power in true Walk the Walk spirit!”

Whilst The MoonWalk is traditionally held overnight, as Walk the Walk is not there to look after everyone, this year there will be various start times during the day, to be confirmed closer to the date. All Walkers and supporters should observe government social distancing guidelines during their Virtual MoonWalk.
