Last year’s first “Walking our Mammaries” event in 2022 raised over £12,000. 8 women, all with a lobular diagnosis, walked up mountains named after breasts in the Scottish highlands.
On Saturday 21 May, our final day of the walk, we were joined by our family and friends to summit Mam na Gualinn, a 796m high mountain in the Mammores (Gaelic for big breasts). As you can see from the picture above it was a very wet and windy day at the summit but we all got there together.
Walking our Mammaries 2023 Challenge
This year, we’re organising a smaller in person challenge in the Peak District. Over the weekend of 13 – 15 October, 14 women will walk 15km around the hills of Edale.
If you have had a Lobular Breast Cancer diagnosis, we’d love you to come and join us, share your experiences and help to support our work. To find out more about the weekend and how you can sign up, please visit https://bit.ly/3sgjo2K
Walk your own mammary mound or mountain
You might prefer to create your own challenge for Lobular this summer and walk a mammary mound or mountain of your choosing. We’ve launched a virtual Walking our Mammaries fundrasier that ends on 30 September where you simply pick a hill or mountain near you that looks or sounds like a boob.
To find out more and how you can get involved, simply visit our Virtual Walking our Mammaries page.
Organising your own fundraiser
If you have ideas for a specific fundraising activity, we can support you and celebrate your success. It might be running the Manchester Marathon, taking part in the Kiltwalk or doing your longest swim in a lake in Wales,
Every £1 you contribute helps us to work towards a future where no one dies of lobular breast cancer.
Every time you take part in a fundraising event wearing a t-shirt that mentions Lobular Breast Cancer, you increase awareness of this distinct disease.
