HEALTH CLUB THINKS PINK TO HELP FIGHT BREAST CANCER
The PinkPower Walk is now in its eighth year and will take place on the 15th of May 2011. So far, more than three quarters of a million pounds have been raised, for two Breast Cancer Charities. The Riverside Health and Racquets Club Chiswick is one of the events sponsors. They have fully embraced the 16-mile fund-raising event and are offering training walks and tips to both members and non-members participating in the PPW 2011.
The walk is held annually in south-west London to raise vital funds for Breakthrough Breast Cancer and the Caron Keating Foundation, a charity set up by TV personality Gloria Hunniford in the wake of her daughter Caron’s death.

In December a couple of my fellow PinkPower Walk team members and I were invited to meet Dr Andrew Tutt and a number of other scientists at Breakthrough's research unit at Kings College London.
We were there to see how they money raised from the 2009 PinkPower Walk was being spent.
Dr Tutt and his team (seen in the photo above) are an amazing group of individuals, who have dedicated their lives to Breast cancer research. Their passion and drive is amazing; I came away feeling humbled and moved by their professionalism and their expertise.
