Spectrum supporting Mimosa Matters

The Nice to Cannes Relay Marathon

As we gear up for the upcoming Nice to Cannes Relay Marathon on November 5th, I wanted to take a moment to share with you the reason behind my choice to support Mimosa Matters, a charity that holds a special place in my heart.

In a world that often seems to move too quickly, community stands out as a pillar of strength and support. It’s a reminder that we are not alone and that, together, we can make a meaningful impact. The Nice to Cannes Relay Marathon embodies the spirit of community, with individuals coming together to achieve a common goal through teamwork and perseverance, and having a bit of fun together through the aches and pains.

Don’t worry, I am not running the entire Marathon – that would be crazy – I will leave that for those whose fitness levels are way better than mine!

I am running the final 6.4km leg…. some might say the ‘taking-all-the-glory-leg’… for Team Early Birds, a gang of super women who are doing all the hard work over the proceeding 35.6km; if you have a spare euro or two, please do consider empowering our legs to carry us all to the end by helping us raise some funds for the important work that Mimosa undertake.

I was hoping to run a longer leg but a recent bout of bronchitis and a lower back injury have curtailed my training a little but I am back hitting the tarmac again and as I lace up my running shoes for my leg of the Relay Marathon, I am not just running for personal achievement; I am running to try and make a difference.

Mimosa Matters shares this commitment, and by supporting their cause, we can collectively contribute to creating a stronger, more compassionate community.

Your contribution, no matter the size, will help make a positive impact on the lives of those in need. Together, we can run towards a brighter and more connected future. Of course, please don’t feel any pressure to contribute at all… instead perhaps share this email or come and encourage us all on the road a week on Sunday, you won’t miss us, we’ll all be in bright yellow.

Why Mimosa Matters

Spectrum and I have chosen to support Mimosa Matters again because of the incredible work they do in fostering a sense of community and making a positive difference in the lives of others. Mimosa Matters goes beyond traditional charity by actively engaging with local communities and addressing their specific needs in the fight against cancer.

They work closely with local cancer professionals & associations to create and fund projects to increase awareness of the causes of cancer and to channel funds into cancer research and into associations that directly support patients and their families living with cancer in our region.

Sadly, too many of us have been directly affected by this relentless disease and we must stand, walk or run together to try and stop it.
