Scores of Scottish citizens gathered together for a moonwalk in Scotland this past weekend - but not the kind that goes backwards.
According to the Associated Press
, over 10,000 people pounded the pavement at the Edinburgh MoonWalk, a breast cancer fundraiser coordinated by the charity Walk the Walk.
GMTV presenter Lorraine Kelly was one such participant, who admitted the event went off without a hitch.
"The atmosphere was inspiring and uplifting. For me it was a special family event as, for the first time, my mum Anne and daughter Rosie joined me," she told the news source.
The course, which was 13 miles, led walkers through downtown Edinburgh while passing iconic buildings such as Edinburgh Castle, The Monument of Queen Victoria and Waverly Court. All of the establishments were lit up with pink lights, highlighting the cause's signature color.
Walk the Walk began 13 years ago in New York by Nina Barough, who in a strange twist of fate, was diagnosed with the disease eight months later. However, she later went into remission and is now completely cancer-free.
