Hi all,

Over the years here at HQ, we have seen many of you sadly impacted by cancer, either personally or that of a loved one and we wanted to do a little something to try and raise some money for a cancer charity.

We have chosen the MoonWalk in London on the 14th May.
11 of us from MNHQ will be doing the half moon (13.1 miles officially but actually about 15 miles) around London starting at midnight shock. If you are doing it too, please come and say hi, we'll be wearing MN t-shirts grin

If you can spare a few quid, we'd be really very grateful. You can DONATE HERE

We promise to post here as we walk and maybe a few pictures too.

What a positive and lovely thing, MNHQ. Good on you all.

How's training going?

RJnomore1 Tue 03-May-16 13:11:23

Oh good luck! Me and a friend did Edinburgh last year - it was a great experience. I'll be sure to sponsor you when I get paid.

Shouldn't this be in charity noticeboard or whatever it's called where nobody ever ventures? wink grin

I'm only joking and driving a bit more traffic your way

Thanks Norks for the much needed <ahem> support.

BathshebaDarkstone Tue 03-May-16 17:34:26

Done. smile Good luck! grin

katemiddletonsnudeheels Tue 03-May-16 18:38:56

Mumsnet, I would love to support you but do you mind waiting until Friday due to having to replace some very expensive tyres blush smile

Posting so I find on TIO and don't forget!

MaureenMLove Tue 03-May-16 19:59:28

Good luck everyone. Kbear and I will post on here, when we know where we're going to be stationed, so you know where to look out for us.

Really looking forward to the whole experience!

OohMrDarcy Tue 03-May-16 20:02:03

I'm moonwalking too - full moon here!

Queenbean Tue 03-May-16 20:08:11

Does this mean that we will see pictures of what you all actually look like?!

Not sure how I feel about that. MNHQ feels a bit mystical to me, like unicorns.

Have donated smile

RebeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 03-May-16 20:11:14

🦄 = me wink

Yes, you'll get to see us in the flesh, please come and say hi or give us a wave

MaureenMLove Tue 03-May-16 20:21:05

What shall we shout? I'm not sure I want to yell 'Mumsnet!' Like the true South London lass I am! grin. I have a tendency to sound a bit fish wifey! Can we have a code name to shout, so it's not quite so obvious were MNers?

We could just shout, 'nice norks!' I suppose. That's not obvious at all! hmmgrin

MumOnTheRunCatchingUp Tue 03-May-16 20:34:14

Oh well done!!

Didn't know we were allowed to post looking for sponsors! Lots of mumsnetters will be looking for donations as race for life season kicks in

RJnomore1 Tue 03-May-16 20:37:58

Got to be Pom bear decorated bras hasn't it?

DurhamDurham Tue 03-May-16 21:01:17

Don't forget the cake, eat lots of cake in preparation.

Something to do with recarbing before strenuous activity or something , I'm not really sure but it's better to be safe than sorry cake

BIWI Tue 03-May-16 21:15:20

Good luck all of you.

NationMcKinley Tue 03-May-16 21:27:59

I'm doing the half MoonWalk too! I'll be wearing the MN scarf (whatever that is). There's a few of us from work doing it: we lost one of our gorgeous girls to bastard breast cancer just over a year ago sad
