Novelist, Journalist and Presenter Martel Maxwell shows off her inner Superheroine in a specially designed MoonWalk Scotland bra, to celebrate the partnership with Homecoming Scotland 2014, a year-long celebration of hundreds of events taking place across Scotland.
Designed by Judy R Clark, one of Scotland’s most highly acclaimed award-winning designers and recently announced as Womenswear Designer of the Year at the Scottish Style Awards in November 2013, the creation incorporates both bespoke Homecoming Scotland and MoonWalk tartans, to tie in with the “Superheroes” theme of this year’s event. The design also combines lace with gold and black embellishments and has been hand stitched in Judy R Clark’s studio.
The MoonWalk Scotland has united with Homecoming Scotland to encourage people to get both active and creative – two of the key celebratory themes of the Year of Homecoming. This year’s MoonWalk route will see participants taking in some of Edinburgh’s most iconic locations including Arthur’s Seat and the Royal Mile, with many of the buildings lit up pink, including Edinburgh Castle.
Judy said“The MoonWalk has some true people power behind it and I am honoured to be able to help represent this through designing a special bra and cape for the event. I wish all the participants the best of luck and can’t wait to join them in celebrating another inspirational year”.
Organised by grant-making breast cancer charity Walk the Walk, The MoonWalk Scotland sees thousands of women and men wearing brightly decorated bras Power Walk through the streets of Edinburgh at Midnight to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.
Sign up now to join thousands of Superheroes as they set off on their walking challenge from Inverleith Park on Saturday 7th June, with a distance for all abilities. Choose from the 6.55 miles New Moon, open to everyone aged ten and over, the Half Moon (13.1 miles), Full Moon (26.2 miles) or the challenging 52.4 miles Over The Moon.
Participants in The MoonWalk have raised more than £16 million since the first event in 2006, with most of the money staying in Scotland to help improve the lives of people with cancer. Walk the Walk makes a huge difference across the country, granting large amounts to projects and charities who would otherwise take many years to raise the money on their own.
