Pink flamingoes get ready for take off

Hilary Jessup from Vale do Lobo and Margo Fletcher from Santa Bárbara have entered the MoonWalk London 2011 charity event on May 14.

This year’s theme is ‘A Walk on the Wild Side’, so they have decided to call their team the Pink Flamingoes.

The Moonwalk is a famous night-time challenge for women and men to join together to walk the London marathon route, wearing their decorated bras to raise money and awareness for breast cancer causes.

It is one of only three power walking marathons in the world, the other two being in Edinburgh and Iceland.

Hilary and Margo are now in strict training and can be seen three times a week walking around Quinta do Lago and the Ria Formosa.
