Last Saturday I was delighted to join a team of MPs and thousands of men and women to take part in the 16th London Moonwalk.
Wearing a bra that we decorated ourselves; we walked for 13 miles in the pouring rain to raise money to fund vital Breast Cancer research and help those suffering from the disease.
The event was a lot of fun, fellow walkers had gone above and beyond to dress up for the event and the energy amongst the crowd was electric.
Each year breast cancer kills around 12,000 women and claims the lives of around 80 men. It is important that we continue to raise money to fund research that is essential to improving survival rates as well as increasing awareness of the disease among both women and men.
So far we have raised over £4900 for this fantastic cause and I want to thank everyone who donated. You can still donate by clicking here http://www.walkthewalkfundraising.org/teammp
Finding the disease early is very important in improving survival rates. To find out how to look for the signs and symptoms of breast cancer please click here http://www.breastcancercampaign.org/about-breast-cancer/breast-cancer-symptoms
