As well as giving women of all ages the opportunity to dance, Moondance aims to help in the fight against breast cancer. However we appreciate that there are many, many equally deserving charities out there and therefore a minimum of 50% of monies raised at a Moondance event will go to Breast Cancer Now with up to another 50% going to a charity, or charities, of the organiser’s choice.
About Breast Cancer Now (formerly Breakthrough Breast Cancer)
“Right now, breast cancer is at a tipping point. More women are surviving. But more are being diagnosed than ever before. One in eight women in the UK will face breast cancer in their lifetime. And every 45 minutes, another woman dies from the disease. We’re going to change that. By doing whatever it takes, however we can, working tirelessly every day. We’re bringing together the brightest minds, the boldest fundraisers and the most determined campaigners. And we need you to join us. Because if we all act now, by 2050, we believe everyone who develops breast cancer will live.”

Many companies offer to match monies raised by their workforce for charity. Why not ask if your company offers this and, if so, consider Moondance as a fundraising option – doubling the money raised gives such a boost to your efforts.
