Nijmegen Marches 2014 – Pat’s amazing experience!

At the beginning of the year did I plan on walking the Nijmegen Marches…no I didn’t…I knew I wanted to walk them one day but had no plans to walk them in 2014.

Sniffing out breast cancer – thanks to Walk the Walk!

We are delighted to announce that we have recently made a grant to the Medical Detection Dogs charity, to help fund an important pilot study that could help detect breast cancer in its very early stages. The study involves taking a breath sample from women at the time they visit the hospital for their mammograms. The breath samples are then used for research and for training dogs to sniff out breast cancer.
