2012 Prowl to be a Diamond Event

A big hearted north east community is once again preparing for one of the region’s largest fund raising event.

Since its inception in 2006 the Fraserburgh based Moonlight Prowl has raised over half a million pounds for research into the prevention and treatment of breast cancer at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and the University of Aberdeen.

Event Chairperson Pamela Manett said:

“Each year this event goes from strength to strength with the 2011 event raising just over £78,000. Work is already underway to make the 2012 event one to remember.

“This year the Prowl will take place on Saturday 2 June 2012 which is the weekend of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth.

“We are confident the ladies of the Moonlight Prowl will want to celebrate in style.”

Registration for next year’s event will be launched at the Dalrymple Hall and Arts Centre on Saturday 21 January 2012, when ladies will be invited to join the Prowl Committee in a one mile walk to kick start their New Year training programme.

However, don’t worry if you can’t make the launch event.

For the first time ladies will be able to register on line. Log on to www.moonlightprowl.co.uk for further information on how to take part.

The “Moonlight Prowl” is a charity walk designed to raise the awareness of breast cancer and to raise funds for research, and sees over 1,500 ladies dressed in pink walking through the night to raise funds for this disease, which affects the lives of one in 10 women throughout the UK.

The Fraserburgh based event, has raised over £540,000 for research into the prevention and treatment of breast cancer at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and the University of Aberdeen, resulting in the establishment of a number of research programs.
