Rivington WTH Challenge - Canoeing and Running to raise £3K!

Sail 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of sailing enthusiasts in 2001, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Sail 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of water based days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer.

We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of sport (e.g. sailing) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

Lynsey Smith from World Travel Holdings (WTH) has been telling Sail 4 Cancer about the “Rivington WTH Challenge”. On Sunday 25th September 30 Employees from WTH will be taking part in the Challenge - a 2K Canoe and a 3K Run. The group want to raise as much money for Sail 4 Cancer as they can and have set themselves a fundraising target of £3,000.

Lynsey says:
“This is how we have heard about Sail 4 Cancer and what we have done so far.

“In 2010 our MD, James Cole, attended a travel industry function and heard an inspiring speech from Andy Hayward from Sail 4 Cancer about the great work they do to provide water based respite days for families affected by cancer. James contacted Andy after the event, they set up a working relationship and have become good friends. In the past 6 years WTH UK has raised over £40,000 for this magnificent cause. The fund raising efforts of WTH and Sail 4 Cancer have enabled many families to be briefly taken away from the nightmare that they are living through and offer them the chance to rebuild relationships, create positive memories and have some quality fun time together.”
