This year take a step forward for people affected by breast cancer and take part in Glasgow at Night Pink Ribbonwalk when it returns to the city.

The charity is inviting women, men and children to sign up now and start training for a 5, 10 or 20 mile walk across the city at night on 17 June to help Breast Cancer Care be there for the thousands of people diagnosed with the most common cancer in the UK.

And if you sign up for the Pink Ribbonwalk by February 28 using the code GLAS5 and you’ll not only get 20 per cent off your entry fee but you will help Breast Cancer Care to support people from the moment they notice something isn’t right, through to their treatment and beyond.

More than 1,000 people in Greater Glasgow will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year and all funds raised at the Pink Ribbonwalks enable the charity to provide care, support and information to them from day one.

Emma Claridge, Pink Ribbonwalk Manager for Breast Cancer Care, said: “We are so excited to return to Glasgow in June. The walkers, including women with a diagnosis, at our first Glasgow at Night Pink Ribbonwalk last year raised almost £140,000 for women, men, family and friends affected by breast cancer.

“We’re expecting this year’s event to be even more popular and are looking forward to welcoming new walkers and familiar faces. We’ll have cheering stations at various points along the route and remember, men can walk too so the whole family can take part – there’s no excuse for dads, sons, uncles and grandpas to wait at the finish line!”
