Walking The Night to help beat cancer

Posted 18.07.2018

On Saturday night (14th July), London’s King Cross Granary Square saw over 1,000 men and women join together to walk either a half (13.1 miles) or full (26.2 miles) marathon through London to raise vital funds and awareness for leading cancer charities, Prostate Cancer UK and Breast Cancer Care.

It marked the first year that this event by Dream Challenges took place, as well as the first time that both Prostate Cancer UK and Breast Cancer Care have teamed up.

Every 10 minutes a woman in the UK is told that she has breast cancer, making it the most common female cancer in Britain. 2018 also marked the first year that Prostate Cancer entered the top three most common cancers, with one man every hour receiving a diagnosis. With over £360,000 raised for the event, 100% of these funds will go straight into helping to find a cure!

With George Anderson hosting the event, carnival dances swaying to a samba beat, and the Townsend Twins warming up the crowd – there was an amazing atmosphere in the air.

The walkers set off at 8pm, and we saw the first of the half marathon walkers coming back at midnight. With walkers arriving back after the sun came up, here are some of our favourite photos:
