One of Tauranga's biggest annual charity events will blow out 10 candles this year as it hits double digits. Breast Cancer Support Service Tauranga Trust service manager Helen Alice said the fundraiser had blossomed from having 35 people at the first event to having more than people during two nights. Tui Hambrook and Clare Worden, who created the event all those years ago, had no idea it would grow into one of Tauranga's biggest charity events of the year, Alice said.
The event is held annually in LondonEdinburgh and Iceland. Walk the Walk then grants money to other charities and organizations throughout the UK. Many celebrities and designers have created spectacular decorated bras for Walk the Walk.
Breast cancer charity Walk the Walk is on the lookout for volunteers to help with their Moonwalk event later this month. As thousands of walkers take to the streets of Edinburgh overnight in colourful costumes to raise money, the charity is in need of helpers to make sure everything runs smoothly. There are a variety of roles, from keeping walkers hydrated by handing out water and providing encouragement out on the route by being part of the cheer squad, through to cycle marshals and helping in the baggage tent.
