About Walk the Walk
Walk the Walk is a grant making charity dedicated to raising money and awareness for vital breast cancer and other cancer causes. We are also passionate about encouraging women, men and children to start walking as the easiest way of becoming more active, keeping fit and maintaining good health. This has now been recognised to play a key part of overall well-being and prevention against not only cancer but all disease.
Since 1996, with the help of all its supporters, Walk the Walk has raised an incredible £134 million - all the money raised on our challenges is raised for Walk the Walk. We then award grants to other charities and organisations across the UK, where we feel it will do the most good. Some of our funding supports research, important to all our future health. We are particularly interested in funding research into secondary cancers with the hope that before too long those with secondary’s will have the same opportunities of survival as those with primary cancers.
However, the past 2 years has been a devastating time for those with cancer. Consequently, due to Covid, our main focus at this time is funding essential physical and emotional support for those living with cancer now. We cannot underestimate just how valuable your support will be.

Cancer support services and cancer charities across the UK are desperately trying to recover from the Covid crisis trying to provide much needed care and support for those living with cancer.
Over the past 2 years many people with symptoms have been too afraid of Covid to visit their doctor or hospital for an early diagnosis. As a result, many are being diagnosed later and with more severe outcomes. Experts are warning that there is already a significant rise in secondary cancers being diagnosed, which could set progress in cancer treatments back by several years.
In exchange for your help and generosity, we want to take you travelling, with the promise of thrills, spills and excitement as your balloon/s Race Down Under, from the roof of the Sydney Opera House, who knows where you may end up!... Plus there are great cash prizes... Many thanks to Tunnock’s for generously donating our 1st prize and to our Mystery Donors for our 2nd and 3rd prizes …so let’s unite together and take this opportunity to make a difference for those that need your help now!
