Walking mountains named after breasts in the Scottish Highlands
15 – 21 May 2022
We are eight women all who have had a diagnosis of lobular breast cancer and are at different stages of treatment.
‘Walking our Mammaries’ is a tough six-day mountain challenge to raise awareness, as well as money, to create educational materials, pilot workshops and to find a network of patients and cancer researchers.
We’ll be walking hills and mountains named after breasts in the Scottish Highlands. We will be exploring the Mamores that mean ‘big breasts’ in Gaelic and heading to the top of the Pap (breast or nipple) of Glencoe.
Every £1 donated will go directly towards the vital work necessary to ensure no one dies of lobular breast cancer in the future.
If you want to get involved, you can join in virtually and walk your own mammary mountain or hill anywhere in the world on Saturday 21 May 2022.
It will be the last day of our main challenge, and together we can all connect across social media to share our challenges, and make a real difference in the lives of everyone affected by lobular breast cancer.

“Having gone through Lobular myself, this charity is very close to my heart and I’m excited to become an active member of the team. I love walking and wanted to do something that got me actively involved with the organisation, not simply just a name on a website. ‘Walking our Mammaries’ is such a unique take on the charity walking fundraiser and something that everyone can take part in”
Many people we have spoken with express how isolated they feel after a lobular diagnosis. Despite it being the second most common form of breast cancer, there is little information about the disease or specific treatments.
