Mo Burton takes on marathon challenge for breast cancer causes

A Healthcare Assistant working at The Links care home in Broadstone, Poole raised more than £300.00 by walking 26.2 miles when she participated in The Moon Walk London on Saturday May 14.

Mo Burton, 59, who has worked at The Links for more than two years, embarked on the challenge to raise funds for Walk the Walk, a charity which supports breast cancer causes.

She completed the challenge in eight hours alongside her daughter and niece. Mo said: “It was a huge personal achievement to complete the marathon walk as it took four months to train for and I was delighted that as a team of three, we raised more than £700.00 for breast cancer causes.”

John Yeoman, managing director of Primetower Care, the company which runs The Links care home and The Lindsay in Poole, said: “We were delighted to support Mo in her marathon challenge. She is a real inspiration to the team here as well as to all the residents who are all really proud of her.”
