A Bitter Sweet Day for MABS Mazarrón

On 8th November the MABS Mazarrón team was delighted to receive the keys to a brand new van. The van was a gift, in appreciation for the care and support MABS had provided to the late June Parkinson and her family during her recent illness.

June’s passing in early September was particularly difficult for the MABS Mazarrón team because June was not only a patient; she was a much loved and respected volunteer.  She may be gone, but her legacy will live on for many many years to come and with the van bearing a dedication to her memory she will be with us every day. The van will be used to transport hospital equipment to the homes of our patients and to collect items donated to our Charity Shop in Totana.

There are no words that can accurately describe the immense debt of gratitude we owe to Mark and Gareth and their families for their wonderful gift, but we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to you all.

RACE For LIFE Raises Over 6,000€ for MABS Mazarrón

Start

This year saw the 13th annual MABS RACE for Life with participants from all nationalities taking part. The crisp cool weather was perfect for the runners as they made their way around the familiar 4Km course.

Doggies

This year we were a little disappointed to have only one Mobility Scooter entry – this part of the race is just for fun, with no pressure to whizz around the course – but that said Carl (standing in for Billie) did a great job negotiating the course with ease.

As always we are grateful to the Camposol Residents who were respectful and courteous towards the runners and our Race Marshalls.

Special Thanks to:-

Team Ryan

IBEX Insurance for being the main event Sponsor again.

Mercers for stationery and office support.

Cruz Roja & FAST for being there in case we needed you.

Mazarrón Ayuntamiento for your help and support.

Scotsdale Finance for supplying water.

Winners

MABS volunteers who helped before, during and after the race and particular thanks to Michael, Keith and Zue for the hard work in preparation for and clearing up after the race.

Finally to the race participants, whether you ran, walked, skipped or rode around Camposol, you have helped raise in the region of 6,400€ for MABS Mazarrón

Thank You All and See You Next Year!!!!!
