The PinkPower Walk 2012


We had our ninth PinkPower walk event yesterday-and the sun shone down on us.
Friends and families gathered and supported walkers along the 16 mile route. The events committee are hoping to reach the Million pound target this year, supporting two two Breast cancer charities : Breakthrough breast cancer and the Caron Keating foundation.
 I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part, volunteered or sponsored an individual/or the event.
Gloria Hunniford gave a wonderful speech about the loss of beautiful daughter to Breast cancer, and why we are all committed to trying to eradicate this disease.
One of  my team members in this photo was diagnosed with Breast cancer in September of last year-She has since had treatment and a mastectomy-she walked 16 miles yesterday and her bravery and courage keeps us all motivated.

I would also like to say a big thank you to all the osteopaths and physiotherapists from The Putney clinic www.putneyclinic.co.uk  who massaged more than 200 pairs of legs yesterday.
