Pamela and Fiona’s walking madness.... continues! So, it’s MoonWalk time again!


It was 2013 when we shared, probably too many details, about our exciting Three Land Challenge, when we raised over £8500 for the charity walkthewalk. We did 3 marathons in 5 weeks in three countries, in our bedazzled bras, and hard as it was we had a blast!


Both of us have walked many moonwalks since and here we are again preparing for Edinburgh’s Moonwalk in June. This year though, we are being joined by a group of all ages from Pamela’s company - Rubber Chicken Theatre which seems hugely apt as the theme is all about the glamour of Hollywood. Our team name is the Dunblane Drama Queens!


Starting and finishing at Holyrood Park, Edinburgh, this, the original night time walking challenge, is back on Saturday 9 June, oozing glamour, sparkle, fun and adventure. Organised by breast cancer charity, walkthewalk, this year they are turning Holyrood into Hollywood as all the challengers ‘Walk the Walk of Fame’ wearing decorated bras created around their favourite film characters.


There will be lights and action as they march past some of Scotland’s most iconic landmarks, including Edinburgh Castle, Lloyds on the Mound, Arthur’s Seat, Carlton Hill and St Giles Cathedral, many of them lit up pink in honour of all the amazing women and men that are prepared to go that extra mile to help those with cancer in Scotland.


The streets of Tinsel town will be transported to


Edinburgh, as walkers make their way around the route. Expect flashing lights and paparazzi as participants of all ages take on the stars of the silver screen!


More than 80,000 people have taken part in The MoonWalk Scotland over the years, and every step has helped to raise more than £20.5 million. Most of the funds raised from this unique event stay in Scotland to help improve the lives of those with cancer now. Around 4,600 women and men in Scotland are diagnosed with breast cancer each year*.


Walkers can take on one of four challenges: The New Moon (6.55 miles, open to people aged 10 and over), Half Moon (13.1 miles), Full Moon (26.2 miles) or Over The Moon (52.4 miles).


Nina Barough CBE, Founder and Chief Executive of walkthewalk said:


“Let’s unite and make it happen…


Scotland needs everyone to start Walking the Walk for its own good health, but together it also helps us to achieve the amazing work we do for those with cancer. So… for one night only, become a star of the Silver Screen, have fun and really make a difference where it matters.”
