Well not exactly on the moon, but we’d like to say a big congratulations to Art Division’s Rachel O’Riordan for her efforts in the London Moonwalk 2013 on Saturday night.
Rachel and her team walked a full marathon distance – the full moon – of 26.2 miles through London. The event takes place overnight, with walkers starting from 11PM onwards. They started and finished at Battersea power station with the route taking in many London sights including Big Ben, Harrods, Tower Bridge and the South Bank.
Walkers are encouraged to walk with their bras on display to emphasise the fact that they are raising money for breast cancer charities. There are lots of colourful costumes worn by walkers with fairy lights and tutus playing a big part in the night.
The Moonwalk is an annual event which raises money for breast cancer charities. At the start of the walk a massive 3 million pounds had already been raised in sponsor money.
Rachel says: ‘we started at 11:15PM in the second wave and got in just before 6AM so we were pleased. Tired, but pleased. It’s a serious distance but such an inspiring night walking with so many other people in daft costumes for a great cause. We passed Big Ben just as it was striking 5 in the morning!’
Well done to all those who took part - and if you're impressed by their efforts there's still plenty of time to sponsor the Moonwalkers on their team page.
