A team of friends known as the Bexhill Babes will put best feet forward during their big night out - on the London 2014 Moon Walk. The event is organised by charity Walk the Walk which raises funds for Breast Cancer, and is unique as participants walk a marathon of 26.2 miles, or a half marathon of 13.1 miles, through London during the night - while wearing decorated bras. To add to the fun each year there is a theme and this year it is Rockabilly. There will be 17,000 people taking part.
The event isn’t about winning but achievement. Everyone receives a medal, and the satisfaction of raising awareness of breast cancer, plus recognition from family and friends. Kritina Portelli, who made The Bexhill Babes costumes, said: “After eight gruesome hours you can’t put another step forward, and it’s our friendship, love and support that gives us the strength to keep going. We truly are a great team.” If you would like to sponsor The Bexhill Babe Team please contact Kristina on 07906379032.
