Hounslow MPs to take on The MoonWalk London in support of women and men living with breast cancer

Seema Malhotra MP and Ruth Cadbury MP are calling on local residents to support them as they take on a charity walk in May to raise vital funds for Breast Cancer research. They will be joined by a team of MPs and Members of the House of Lords to walk a moonlit half-marathon at The MoonWalk London 2016 on the night of Saturday 14 May.

The team will join 15,000 women and men wearing beautifully decorated bras to power walk their way across London through the night, starting and finishing on Clapham Common.

Walk the Walk’s annual flagship event will this year bring a ‘Carnival’ theme to the streets of London, in celebration of the charity’s 20th anniversary, aiming to raise as much money as possible for crucial breast cancer causes and much-needed awareness of the realities of the disease.

The Hounslow MPs hope to raise £4,000 together. To make a donation for Seema Malhotra MP visit:https://goo.gl/iVx5N5 and for Ruth Cadbury MP visit: https://goo.gl/PhV1j1.

Seema Malhotra MP, Member of Parliament for Feltham & Heston, who did the challenge in 2014, said:  “One in eight women will unfortunately face breast cancer in their lifetime. Having had close family and friends in Hounslow suffer from Breast Cancer, I know how vital it is we make progress to better prevent, diagnose, and treat this awful disease.”

Ruth Cadbury MP, Member of Parliament for Brentford and Isleworth, said: I’m doing the Moonwalk in honour of all those affected by breast cancer, including my sister and some of my closest friends. I’m proud to support Walk the Walk, who distribute the funds raised to exactly where they are needed most, in both research and support, whilst encouraging us all to get out and walk for a healthier future.”
