De Boer helps MoonWalk London celebrate charity milestone

De Boer has once again supplied the ‘Pink Galaxy’ structure for MoonWalk London, the annual fundraising event for breast cancer charity Walk the Walk.

This year’s event marks the 20th anniversary of the charity, which over the years has raised more than £107m through fundraising.

Each year MoonWalkers power-walk a sponsored full or half marathon wearing trademark decorated bras to raise money for charity, with the 2015 event raising more than £6m.

Nina Barough CBE, founder and chief executive of Walk the Walk said: “We are very proud to host the The MoonWalk and celebrate 20 years of Walking the Walk in De Boer’s Galaxy. The unique and iconic pink tent has become synonymous with MoonWalking and to house all 15,000 of our walkers is quite spectacular.

“Each year, we still feel a huge buzz of excitement as the tent goes up and the pink flags fly, marking the beginning of a very special night.”

The 2016 walk will also mark the 10th year that De Boer has provided the Pink Galaxy structure for the event, with the first structure beginning as a bespoke project for the 2006 MoonWalk. . To recognise and celebrate the longstanding relationship, Walk the Walk has presented De Boer a 10 Years association award.

De Boer MD Peter Spruce commented: “We’ve been proud supporters of Walk the Walk for over a decade and the team were honoured to construct the pink party hub again for MoonWalk London 2016. Helping to celebrate 20 years of Walk the Walk with The MoonWalk was a very special event, as well as marking our 10 year association with the charity.”
