If you are looking to do more to help others or if you feel like a fresh challenge?
There is still time to register to take part in Against Breast Cancer’s Breast Walk Ever event in Hampshire on Sunday, May 7th. The charity is also calling on volunteers to step forward and help out on the day.
With full and half marathon options, as well as a 10k walk, Breast Walk Ever Hampshire has plenty of choice for anyone looking for a local walking challenge.
The routes, all starting together just outside Winchester, follow waymarked trails including the Clarendon, Itchin and Pilgrims Way.
All three walks let you trek in the footsteps of King Charles II on the Monarch’s way, following the route he took after suffering defeat to Cromwell in 1651.
Against Breast Cancer’s Breast Walk Ever walkers have raised well in excess of £100,000 over the years to help research into secondary spread Breast Cancer.
“We are delighted to offer a Breast Walk Ever event in Hampshire. To have an event close to where our research takes place has been a long-standing ambition and one we cannot wait to fulfil,” said the charity’s event manager, Richard Martin.
“The routes look stunning and it’s a great chance to get out in the fresh air with family and friends to make a real difference”.
Over 370 men are diagnosed with Breast Cancer each year as well as over 55,000 women. Breast Cancer is statistically the most common form of cancer in the UK. Against Breast Cancer fund vital research into secondary spread of the disease, the main cause of breast cancer related deaths.
Entry fees range from £12 to £28, depending on distance. There is an early bird offer for teams of four who will receive a 20% discount when signing up before the end of January.
Walkers can expect well-stocked support stations, cheerful marshals and a complimentary massage at the finish to go with their hard-earned medal.
All walkers are asked to raise funds with an initial target of just £75. There is free parking at the event HQ in Hursely.
