Charity walkers.

THOUSANDS will pound the pavements when they take part in Newcastle's first SunWalk tomorrow.

Organisers are hoping to raise as much as pounds 300,000 from the event - which will be covered in a special supplement in Monday's Chronicle - will go towards cancer charities.

Up to 2,000 people are expected to step out in aid of the grant-making health charity.

And those taking part will demonstrate their support to breast cancer sufferers by donning hand-decorated bras.

Walkers will be setting off along routes past some of Newcastle's most famous landmarks, including St James's Park, the Tyne and Millennium bridges on the Quayside and through the city centre.

Walkers will be setting off to complete their personal challenge of 5k, 10k or a half marathon, from 10am. For more information, visit www.walkthewalk.org.
