Breast Foot Forward

We need your support urgently - Sign up early - get walking now and feel good!

Last year's Bra Walk cancellation due to the Pandemic lost Action Cancer over £70,000 fundraising income for our breast screening service.

Previously called The Bra Walk we have a new name, a new date and a new reason to fundraise for Action Cancer.

So, assemble your BFF's and put your Breast Foot Forward...sponsored by SuperValu!

Why Walk ?

Ordinarily this event would happen in June, when a sea of pink would take over the grounds of Belfast City Hall.

For the second year in a row it isn’t possible due to Covid19 restrictions. The loss of fundraising events since March 2020 has had a devastating effect on Action Cancers Income. Yet we continue to provide our life saving breast screening service throughout this pandemic. There is a tsunami of undiagnosed cancer cases in Northern Ireland and Action Cancer is experiencing an increase in demand for its services like never before. Our clinic is oversubscribed and we have a backlog of ladies aged 40-49 and 70+ still waiting for an appointment.

We need URGENTLY NEED YOUR help to continue this service and keep saving lives!

As lockdown continues to ease, there’s no better time to kickstart your fundraising.Use the opportunity of seeing family and BFF’s to get the pennies rolling in?

Each breast screening appointment costs Action Cancer £120, once you have raised this amount you have potentially saved a woman’s life!
