Jackie Llewelyn-Bowen, patron of Cotswold Breakthrough Breast Cancer, boldly agreed to take on the marathon challenge and join the ‘Cotswold Cupcakes’ power walking team for the 2009 MoonWalk. At midnight on 16th May the team of four local ladies, Justine Reynolds, Elizabeth Cannon-Fuller, group chair Amanda Homan-Green and Jackie joined 15,000 men and women power walking the streets of London (26.2 miles) dressed in decorated bras!
"I felt empowered to join the Cotswold Cupcakes team and take part in the MoonWalk," said Jackie. "It is something I have always wanted to do but never felt quite capable of as my former self."
"I have never felt better, in both body and mind, since starting this healthy regime and I have also entered another power walking marathon later in the year and am considering climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with a friend next year," said Jackie.
"Breast cancer currently affects one in eight women at some point in their life and over 300 men are diagnosed with the disease each year in the UK alone. The more we can do to raise awareness and fund the vital research into this hideous disease the better", said Jackie.
