As I said these ladies are all over France but use the power of this Facebook group to get things done. Splashes of pink and talk of walks and runs at local venues filled our last bank holiday weekend but in 24 hours the LIFT ladies had organised a number of walks/runs in a number of departments. I believe that these have been inspired by the UK's Race for Life activities and the walks/runs in France are to support Cancer Support France. It never ceases to amaze me that women don't have to be in the same room and things get done!
I have been informed by my wife that we are to pack a picnic and the dogs and be at Lake Lambon, near Celles-sur-Belle on Sunday June 23rd at 11am, for a lap or two round the lake. My part in all this is to get the camping stove on and make tea and enjoy the afternoon with fellow picnickers and fuel fellow LIFT ladies with tea and chocolate. Can't argue with that, if it means a lazy Sunday afternoon with a cold beer chilling out with LIFT ladies husbands.
My wife tells me that LIFT is a closed group but if you want to get involved in a walk/run in your area, you must be a member of the LIFT group and here's a link. https://www.facebook.com/groups/LadiesInFranceTogether Once you have joined the group there is a place called Events and in there, so I have been told, is a list of runs/walks to raise funds for Cancer Support France - http://cancersupportfrance.org/
