Dying Matters CEO to MoonWalk for charity
Claire and two friends will be joining an estimated 17,000 other participants on Saturday night for the annual MoonWalk – a 26.2 mile route around London which many women - and a few brave men - complete wearing crazily decorated bras.
She will be pounding the pavements in memory of her mother-in-law and her grandmother, and as a personal challenge.
Claire and her friends have called their team 'The Spring Chickens' because, she says, "We are all ladies of a certain age."
Claire views the walk as the ideal preparation for Dying Matters Awareness Week, which starts on Monday. She said: "I knew what my grandma wanted; where she wanted to die and how it was important for her to be surrounded by family. The MoonWalk highlights the need to turn ideas into action for the best. By talking to your family about what you want for the end of life, you can live life to the full knowing that's been taken care of."
Walk the Walk, which organises the MoonWalk, has awarded more than £92million in grants to breast cancer charities to fund life-saving research.
