Walk the Walk

Description:

Walk the Walk is the UK's largest grant making breast cancer charity.  It came into being in 1996 when just 13 women power walked the New York City Marathon in their bras to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.  What started out as a one-off fundraising event has become a multi-million pound charity, raising in excess of £128 million to date for vital breast cancer causes.

Being a grant making charity means that everybody taking part in their challenges is raising money for Walk the Walk, which they then distribute to other charities and organisations throughout the UK, to help them reach their united goals and ambitions of treating breast cancer.

They offer to two types of grant:

  • Key Grants where they limit the number of organisations they support at any time, enabling them to make larger grants, to help charities to reach their aims more quickly, and
  • a Community Grant where each year money is earmarked to grant to small community charities that are working on the front line against cancer.

Walk the Walk are dedicated to raising money and awareness for vital breast cancer causes, and to encourage women, men and children to start walking as a way of keeping fitter, healthier and as an important part of cancer prevention.
