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  who massaged more than 200…

What a fantastic day we had at yesterday's PinkPower Walk event. The 16 mile walk was the 8th event we have held.To date, more than three quaters of a million pounds have been raised for two Breast Cancer charities: Breakthrough Breast Cancer and the Caron Keating Foundation.Caron Keating was a TV presenter and mum to two young boys when she died at the age of 40 from Breast Cancer.

Over the past eight years of being together, the team have all had personal experiences of friends and loved ones being affected by this disease. While sat around a kitchen table planning the event, there has been much laughter and some tears shed. So as the blisters start to fade and the money raised is put to good use, we are meeting to start planning 2012.

I'm so proud to be a part of this event and am completely humbled by the participators, who all have their own story to tell.I would like to say a big thank to all volunteers, but …

PinkPower Walk 2010

It is now over a week since our 7th PinkPower walk took place. It was a fantastic day and, as always, an emotional one. Although it is still early days, and money is still coming in, our total so far is £90,000 from last week’s event; bringing funds raised so far to in excess of £700,000

There is a team of six who put this event together, sitting around a kitchen table a couple of times a month throughout the year, then going off to manage our designated jobs, corresponding via email and snatched early morning meetings before work.

The event would not be possible without the support of many family and friends, who give up their time to come and volunteer both on the day, and prior to the event. Hundreds of walkers have taken part and raised the staggering amount above. All doing their bit to help find a cure for breast cancer

Over the years we have laughed, cried and pulled our hair out trying to organise the event around our working lives. On more than one occasion, I have asked myself …

The PinkPower Walk

On Sunday 17th of May, the sixth annual PinkPower Walk took place. This year's walk was slightly different from previous years as it was a 16-mile walk (setting out from Richmond Park and finishing in Barnes), whereas in previous editions it was either a marathon or half-marathon event. I am pleased to announce that an amazing £160,000 has been raised from this year's walk, with money raised going to two charities, Breakthrough and the Caron Keating Foundation, both of which raise funds for research into breast cancer.

What is the PinkPower Walk?

The PinkPower Walk came to exist after a I and a group of five other women applied to take part in another breast cancer fundraising event, only to be not given a place. Far from discouraging us, this disappointment actually inspired us to set about creating our own event and with the cooperation and participation of friends and family, we were able to gather together 38 participants for the first walk, raising approximately £39,000…
