No Stroll In The Park!
A select group of Eden Members and Fitness Instructors have signed up to take part in the 21stMoon Walk – a 26.2 mile walk through the streets of London during the night of 12/13 May 2018.
Thousands of women take part each year in order to raise money for breast cancer. Over 26 miles of walking whilst wearing decorated bras! This year’s theme is The Wild West – yee-haw, we can’t wait! The team comprises Eden Members, Shenaz Primrose, Sarah Balfe and Alison Fairhurst with Fitness Instructors, Daisy Baugh and Lucy Rutt to keep us motivated and on the right track.
Unfortunately, most of us have known someone affected by breast cancer (either directly or indirectly). Walk the Walk is the largest grant making breast cancer charity in the UK and provides funds for both research and support for cancer patients and their families. We are hoping to raise as much money as possible. You may already have noticed collection boxes and sponsorship forms at both the Main Reception and Gym Reception – every little helps. In addition to this, we are hosting a Country and Western themed Clubbercise event and raffle on Thursday, 19 April at 6.00pm.
We have been training since the beginning of February. Our routes are carefully planned to incorporate adequate refuelling at cafes and pubs and we have been ably supported by Betsy (Lucy’s dog) who is having to walk rather more than she bargained for (us too)!. Our most recent group walk saw us manage 13 miles (half way) which made us realise just what we have signed up for – it’s not just a little walk!! We would like to thank Ingrid for a much needed pit stop on that occasion (not to mention blister plasters) – she will look twice now before going out her back door! Our walks are often around Eden Hall and surrounding villages so if you see us, give us a toot (or a lift…)😀
We would also welcome any sponsorship via our fundraising page at https://moonwalklondon2018.everydayhero.com/uk/team-eden.
Thanks again for your support, we’ll be sure to keep you updated with our events, progress and blisters!
