Many of you may know, that Keith and Kate take part in the Eastbourne annual 24 hour relay walk for Cancer Research. This year’s event on 1st and 2nd July is looming fast and we’re delighted and very grateful, that the McLaren Formula 1 team have provided us with an exclusive signed photograph of Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso. With Jenson Button now having retired from racing, this is going to be limited edition photograph and has been specifically offered for Eastbourne Cancer Research Relay.
The photo comes with a letter of authenticity from McLaren. If you know an F1 fan who would cherish this, we are taking bids via email, twitter, and facebook. The reserve is £25.00 and in the 4 weeks to the run up to the walk, we’ll provide the latest bid on a daily basis, though we won’t disclose who the bidder is. The winner will be announced after the end of the walk at noon on 2nd July and we’ll arrange delivery to the successful bidder afterwards.
If you aren’t into F1, but would like to support the “All Nightie” 24 hour walking team, we’d be very grateful for any donations. Keith’s Just Giving page is http://relay.cancerresearchuk.org/site/TR/RelayForLife/General?px=1179275&pg=personal&fr_id=1686
His sister, Jane, died 4 years ago at the age of 44 to cancer and this is the 3rd year we have taken part in this event. The team’s target this year is £10,000 and we’re well on the way, with £7,500 already donated.
Keith is plannnig to walk for the whole 24 hours with our Associate Trainer, David, and Kate will be offering reflexology/foot massages to all those teams taking part during the weekend to boost the coffers. Our coaching Associate, Louise will be walking and organising the various fund raising activities for all the family over the 2 days – the team consists of family and friends aged from 4 – 86!
We train many organisations in working as a team, and this event, which has all ages, survivors and families taking part, is a true reflection of everyone pulling together for a common goal – team working at its best!
