COVID fails to stop the MABS Annual Race for Life
This year, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, we were unable to host the 15th annual race in its usual format and initially thought we would have to abandon it like so many of our other fundraising events, but after a flash of inspiration we decided to try a ‘virtual´ race whereby runners and walkers undertook a 4km run at their leisure and in an environment that they felt safe.
We were a little dubious at first, but we had nothing to lose and we never should have doubted the tremendous support of our community, with supporters taking part from the UK as well as Spain and together they helped us raise an amazing 6765.98€
We are truly humbled and grateful for your support – THANK YOU!
As you know, the ongoing COVID restrictions have forced our Totana shop to be closed for a considerable period of time and our fundraising events have had to be cancelled, so this money is a huge boost to our funds.
Special Thanks Go To:-
- IBEX for sponsoring the event.
- Mercers for printing services.
Hacienda del Alamo and the Camposol Running Group for your generous support and to each and every man, woman and child (and doggie) who took part in the MABS Virtual R4L to make it such a great success.
Everyone who sponsored our runners/ walkers.
