Walk for Life
This year Cancer Support France - Languedoc will be holding its fifth annual Walk for Life on the 4th October.
This is one of the biggest fundraising events in their calendar, regularly raising thousands of euros through sponsorship and/or donations from participants.
A spokseperson from CSF said:
Following the success of last year’s walk, we will be starting and ending at the Domaine de la Clapière, Montagnac again. As usual, we will be showcasing two different walks (one approximately 5km and one approximately 10 km).
These are on the Domaine’s land and therefore not usually open to the public. We are very grateful to have the opportunity to open up a walk that will be unique and both walks will be led by a guide. The location allows us to have a sun and rain-proof area (with parking) from which to operate.
By popular demand, we will follow the walks with a Fish and Chip lunch (vegetarian option, spring roll), + dessert, available for 12 euros, with wine available for sale by the Domaine. Please note that booking in advance for the lunch is essential, as numbers must be indicated to the caterers beforehand.
It is your support of events like this that allows us to have a team of about 20 Active Listeners providing support to over 30 clients at any one time. To quote a client,
“…I phoned CSF and everything, and I mean everything, was taken off my hands. Help, advice, phone calls, mentors were all taken care of. My husband met my active listener and she and others supported him endlessly and he knew he had back up too. We felt relieved and comforted to know we had this wonderful network at the end of a phone.”
