As reported earlier this month by Look To The Stars, Walsh was named as an ambassador for Breast Cancer Haven, an organization that runs three facilities in Britain – in London, Hereford and Leeds – offering free support, counseling, information and complementary therapies to anyone affected by breast cancer. As part of her duties as ambassador, the singer led the Leeds center’s High-Heel-A-Thon on September 27, an event that saw women and men put on their high heel shoes and complete a 1.2 mile course to raise cash and awareness.
“I am absolutely delighted that the High Heel-a-thon is my first duty as Breast Cancer Haven ambassador,” Walsh said. “I think this is a fantastic event and, as I’m a local girl, I’m so excited to be part of such major activity for the city.”
The charity hoped to raise at least £10,000 from the event, which attracted around 300 participants.
