About dance the distance

Dance the Distance® is a great-big-group-exercise event that takes participants on an incredible journey, experiencing different dance styles and enjoying a wide variety of music that will guarantee smiles all round. The event is approximately equivalent to running or walking 5km in steps and calories but is guaranteed to be more fun!! Plus, it’s a very social and alternative way of fundraising.

You don’t have to be a great dancer – anyone can Dance the Distance®! The moves are simple and taught by expert instructors. If you do have some moves then head to the front row and strut your stuff!

Have any questions about the event? The click the image above a list of FAQ's or email support@emduk.org

About Us

Here at the Mark Lay Foundation our purpose is simple; to support families who are affected by cancer, by providing a financial grant to those who cannot afford to take a holiday or short break. Our grant scheme provides legible families financial support to those who can’t afford to take a break from the gruelling day to day life of cancer and haven’t had the chance to create lasting memories together. 

In February 2017 Team Lay took a short break to Cornwall, this gave them the chance to break away from the everyday life of cancer and treatments.
