The CSF Walk for Life was a resounding success: the sun shone with just a light breeze, the walk was interesting, the whole exercise was excellently organised and everyone enjoyed themselves. There were 202 walkers (up 40% on last year) several of whom were from our group, and a profit of at least 7,500€ was made (some sponsorship money is still being received). I should like to thank everyone who walked, collected sponsorship money and contributed said money so that the Lodève Thursday Walkers with Mike’s friends raised just over 700€. As those of you who were there know Mike was able to come to the walk and he has asked me to add this message to you all.
“What a wonderful day we had last Sunday at the CSF Walk for Life at Domaine de La Clapière, Montagnac, and I wold like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who walked and gave sponsorship. As you can see fro Jenny’s message the amount raised by the Lodève Walkers is amazing so a big THANK YOU. I would also like to thank Jenny for coming up with the idea and also sincerely thank David and Celia Hukins for walking Ollie the 10 kms, he is not an easy dog to walk being very lively and strong. I was delighted to be well enough to come even if just to watch and chat with everyone. Thank you all for the support during the last few weeks and the kind words of encouragement. Hopefully see you all very soon on a Thursday walk. All the the best, Mike”
I am writing on behalf of Cancer Support France-Languedoc to thank the Lodeve Walkers for the fantastic 770 euros raised in sponsorship for the Walk for Life in September. As you are probably aware, the event raised over 8000 euros, but equally importantly will raise awareness of CSF in the community through the 200 participants.
As president for CSFL, I can assure you that contributions such as yours are an essential element in helping to make our organisation run. They enable our volunteers to maintain the level of support that CSF can provide to those who find themselves in need of our services.
Thank you again on behalf of CSF-Languedoc
President Cancer Support France – Languedoc (Hérault, Aveyron)
