Local charity Action Cancer is calling on local men and women to take part in this year’s SuperValu Moonlight Walk.
Last year over 150 people from Lisburn took part in the event and all the money raised went towards Action Cancer’s breast screening service, the only one of its kind in Northern Ireland.
Now in its sixth year, the SuperValu MoonLight Walk which incourages people to walk in pink bra’s will take place on Friday June 20, at 9pm.
Last year nearly 1,000 participants took part in the ten mile walk which departs from Custom House Square Belfast, goes around the City Centre up Malone Road and then back again.
All participants are encouraged to dress in pink –with crazy 80’s being the main theme this year – to help raise awareness of the importance of breast screening and early detection.
Men and women, young and old are all encouraged to get involved in this fun-filled event in memory or support of a loved one with cancer.
Prizes are given out on the night for the best dressed individuals and teams so it’s definitely worth putting some thought into those 80’s outfits and decorated bra’s.
The event kicks off at 7.30pm with a real party atmosphere with fun music from Cool FM and a warm up from the infamous Fitness Freddy before setting off on the walk at 9pm.
Registration for the Moonlight Walk is £20 and Action Cancer is encouraging participants to raise a minimum amount of £80 - the average cost of one mammogram to the charity.
