Completing the MoonWalk is an extraordinary achievement as not only was Tom power walking 26.2 miles, through the night, he was also wearing a dayglo pink decorated bra and tutu to show his support for the cause. Tom decided to undertake the walk following a breast cancer diagnosis in his immediate family. He took on the challenge with close family friend, Jo Childs, and together they joined forces to raise as much money as possible – already they have jointly raised over £2,400.
In its 22nd year, The MoonWalk London, organised by breast cancer charity Walk the Walk, has to date raised almost £97 million. Funds are currently granted to research into secondary cancers and supporting those with cancer, with the growing demands for emotional and physical support.
After a month of practice walks in preparation for the event, Tom found the event gruelling and exhausting. He said: “It was great to see so many people uniting in the walk to fight against breast cancer. I was so impressed that people with breast cancer and undergoing treatment were also there taking part. By the end of the walk, I was physically exhausted but extremely proud to have taken part and raised so much money for this important cause.
