CEF are going the distance to raise £54,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support by walking the 290 mile Macmillan Way in just 17 days.
With the aim of raising enough money to fund a Macmillan nurse for a year, over 70 members of the CEF team are being joined by friends, family and suppliers for different stages of the walk, which stretches from Boston in Lincolnshire to Abbotsbury in Dorset.
Participants will walk between 13 and 28 miles each day along a route that follows footpaths, bridleways and byways, it began on the 1st June and will end on the 17th June 2018.
Andrew Moseley, Commercial Director at CEF, comments: One in two people born after 1960 in the UK are expected to be diagnosed with some sort of cancer during their lifetime and almost 360,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer every year. Macmillan Cancer Support is CEF’s corporate charity partner and plays such a vital role in supporting people living with cancer by providing advice, assistance and nursing.
The Macmillan Way walk is a fantastic opportunity for us as a business, with our colleagues, family and suppliers, to show our support and we’re incredibly proud of the money – and awareness – we’ve raised together.’
The Macmillan Way walk is the latest in a long line of CEF charity events to support Macmillan. CEF team members across the network have been taking part in “Go Mad, Go Green” days, with fund-raising activities ranging from sky dives to ultra-marathons raising over £23,000 so far.
CEF is supporting Macmillan Cancer Support as its chosen charity partner as part of the CEF Cares programme.
