Well Done To The Fraserburgh's Pink Walkers

Just want to say well done to all the Pink Walkers. Pink walkers, I hear you say. Well let me explain.
Saturday night in my home town, Fraserburgh, saw the annual Moonlight Prowl, a charity walk to raise breast cancer awareness with the money raised being donated to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary Breast Cancer Care. The Prowl is a ladies only sponsored walk, with the choice of two distances to be walked, either 6 or 13 miles.
On Moonlight Prowl night, the town is awash with pink - walkers dressed in pink, houses along the route being decked out in pink and householders cheering the walkers along. In the build up to the start of the walk, there is the wee warm up to get the feet moving and at 10pm the walkers head off.
The Moonlight Prowl started in 2006 and raised almost £28,000 and to date the Prowl has raised £345,000.
Sadly I have never been at home when the walk is on, but I always try to do my bit by sponsoring some of my friends who are walking. I hope that one day I will be able to the walk for myself.
Thanks for popping by and taking the time to read about the Prowl. I think most of us out there know a family or person who has been touched by cancer.
