Overview

'Each year, thousands of people walk 14 or 5 miles between our Chelsea and Sutton hospitals to support The Royal Marsden and help build a future beyond cancer. This is a great way for individuals, friends and family to raise funds for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, show their support or honour a loved one. It's also a great opportunity to recognise the ways in which your life has been touched by cancer alongside others with similar experiences.' Held Mid March.

Overview

'Over the last 20 years over 300,000 walkers have taken part in the MoonWalk London. We believe that we are the best midnight fundraising walk you will come across. All the way from entry, your training, fundraising and crossing the line with a medal around your neck - we will be with you. With years of experience to offer we can help guide you. You are never on your own at a MoonWalk ...' Usually held Mid May.
