What on earth makes thousands of people in their bras, in a wild west theme, launch themselves out of London’s Clapham Common in to the night to conduct a marathon power walk?
A fantastic charity, founded by Nina Barough, Walk the Walk started back in 1996 with a crazy idea to powerwalk the New York Marathon in decorated bras. At that time, Nina had no experience of fundraising, running a marathon or breast cancer itself.
This all changed in January 1997, when she found out that she herself had cancer. That April, a team competed in the London Marathon, and raised another £25,000. By 1998 word was spreading, and the steps were taken to make it an official charity. By 2000 Prince Charles himself was Patron.
Fast forward 20 years and Walk the Walk has raised over £30 million for causes related to breast cancer including the tissue bank and the generation study.
We provide hundreds of portable toilets for hire from www.ptl.uk.com for the start and finish point in Clapham, London. A complicated logistical operation takes place all night to makes sure our portable toilets are dropped off and collected at exactly the right timings to ensure that London’s roads are not delayed in reopening early on Sunday.
At the main site in Clapham, our hundreds of Portable Toilets from www.ptl.uk.com are constantly stocked and maintained by our onsite team of portable toilet cleaners and site managers.
Our consultative team are constantly on hand to communicate with Nina’s event management team, keeping them updated on stock levels, and load in and load out plans.
