Fast forward to today and all of a sudden, we're doing it!
We are going to don our very best superhero outfits and run the Nice-Cannes Marathon on November 4th, for Foundation Lenval, Nice - specifically the children's cancer unit.
Think Batman, Wonderwoman, Superman (even Bananaman might make an appearance!) all running for the children in Lenval.
The hospital at Lenval, Nice, serves all children, of all socio-economic and cultural backgrounds within the extended region of Provence-Alpes-Côte-Azur. Many of the children in the cancer unit are at stage 3 or 4.
The children's cancer unit's success relies heavily on private charitable donations. A lack of funding (namely for medical equipment), experienced year-on-year leads to not being able to treat all the children the foundation would like to. This can put delays on operations, medical procedures and treatment procedures.
As funds are so stretched to cover medical expenses; activities and entertainment for the children on the ward are provided but would of course, be somewhat ameliorated with a further monetary injection ;-)
- 50% of the money we raise this year will provide for treatment and medical procedures, and;
- 50% of the money we raise this year will go towards much needed fun, entertainment and activity for the children, to provide joyful and stimulating escape from daily-life in the cancer unit.
We are targeting a cheque of €10,000 for Foundation Lenval, which might seem like a lot...
...but with your help (however big or small - YES, YOU!) we can achieve this significant amount which will be sure to improve the quality of life, increase the likelihood of a happy recovery and put a smile on the face of these brave little legends.
"Individually we are but a drop, but together we are an ocean."
Thank you so much for reading and thanks in advance of your generosity.
Yours in health (and charity)
Paddy and the Superheroes :-)
p.s. One hundred percent of all funds raised through this page will be presented to Foundation Lenval by Friday 9th November (you can see this presentation on the Paddy Warwick Personal Training Facebook page).
p.p.s. As Batman said and I hope you can relate, "it's not who I am underneath, it's what I do that defines me." Thanks in advance for your time, support and generosity.
