Our Walk a Mile for Mesothelioma event is fast becoming an established part of the DAST calendar. We chose to launch it in 2014 for the following reasons:
· To get people talking about Mesothelioma by organising small local events and telling others why they are doing it
· To encourage those suffering from Mesothelioma to do some gentle exercise – this is encouraged by medical professionals in order to try and combat stress and fatigue
· To increase awareness of DAST and the need for our work – as well as to raise funds to enable us to deliver our service
DAST workers and volunteers will again be walking their mile at Nottingham’s Forest Recreation Ground. Anyone is welcome to come along and join us. It has been wonderful over the past two years to see families and pets and to have a chat while we circuit the park.
|Gorgeous Dandelion joined us last year|
We will be there on Friday 9th September from 11.00am. We will travel by train and tram (there is a tramstop right outside the park) but there is also a large car park.
If you are unable to join us we would love it if you could organise your own walk in September. We have a sponsor pack available containing sponsor forms, pens, a T shirt and guidelines for contacting your local press.
We would welcome walks organised by small/local businesses. Perhaps a sponsored walk could be arranged at lunchtime or after work (a short hike to the pub, maybe…) In return for your company’s support we can put the name on our website list of organisation/company supporters and show your photos on all our social media sites and publications.
