The Tutu Much troupe will be dancing the event’s London route, which starts in Potters Fields Park and takes in historic Tower Bridge, St Paul’s Cathedral and Waterloo Bridge, alongside hundreds of fellow walkers, to raise vital funds for people living with HIV.
Walk for Life has a Wizard of Oz fancy dress theme this year and promises a fun summer day out for all ages, with plenty of celebrity spotting opportunities along the way. Previous famous faces who’ve taken part include Danni Minogue, The Feeling, Liz McClarnon, 4 Poofs and A Piano and Glen Wallace.
Francisco Bosch from Tutu Much said: “Walk for Life is a great day out and we’re looking forward to dancing our ruby slippers off again this year, to support THT. Having had friends who’ve been diagnosed with HIV and fallen very ill with AIDS, we know just how vital this event is in raising funds for people living with HIV in severe poverty, so come and dance alongside us on 5th June to support this great cause.”
It’s not too late to sign up to take part in Walk for Life and it costs only £10 to register. All funds raised from walker sponsorship go to THT’s Hardship Fund for people living with HIV in severe poverty. Register online at www.walkforlife.co.uk or call 020 7812 1665.
