The Brussels Women’s Club’s walking marathon around Brussel’s 80km promenade verte over the summer has raised over €9 500 for charities!
The club organised the walk over 7 stages and thanks all the members of the Club, walkers, friends and family who participated either with their feet or with donations to reach the magnificent total of €9 532 for the club’s 2020 Charities: The Parkinson’s Association Belgium and The Giraffe Project Children’s Charity that provides education for desperately poor children from the slums in Nairobi, Kenya.
The Promenade verte is a ~80 km walk right round the periphery of Brussels and was not only an opportunity to raise money, but also to discover the astonishing green belt which surrounds our city and meet new people too!
Not only were the walks a challenge in themselves, but the walk organisers had to cope with the added issues of COVID this year – but nevertheless, the walks became a highlight of the year in more ways than one. And a roaring success for the charities.
