The enormous Pink Galaxy was designed specifically for the London MoonWalk and Losberger De Boer have worked in close cooperation with Walk the Walk in Action for 12 years in order to ensure their event is a great success.
The MoonWalk takes place annually and participants power walk a sponsored full or half marathon overnight wearing the event’s trademark, highly decorated bras to raise awareness and vital funds for research into breast cancer and supportive integrated care.
Losberger De Boer’s bespoke ‘circus’ tent structure provided 9,500 square metres of space on Clapham Common, where the walk started and finished. Losberger De Boer also provided ancillary structures for the event; Alu Halls were used for the kitchen, volunteers tent, first aid and baggage areas, while Acropolis structures were used to house guests and press.
Nina Barough CBE, Founder and Chief Executive of Walk the Walk said:
“Everyone who takes part in the walk loves the Pink Galaxy structure, and it is wonderful seeing the sheer scale of the pink tent rise out of Clapham Common every year. This year’s theme was ‘Wild West’ and the vibrant structure helped create a fun and exciting atmosphere for all our MoonWalkers wearing their glorious decorated bras, to gather and unite against breast cancer.
“Walk the Walk has worked with Losberger De Boer for many years and has a wonderful working relationship. The company’s professionalism is exceptional and a great support in organising an event of this large scale.”
Peter Spruce, Managing Director at Losberger De Boer UK, commented:
“To be asked to build the central structure for Moonwalk London for the 12th year was very special, and every year we feel honoured to take part in an event that is for such a worthy cause.
“The team worked exceptionally well, safely building and dismantling the all the structures in eleven days on a busy and popular public park.”
