SI Chester Walked 500 Miles for Women in April

In April, 5 members of SI Chester committed to walk 500 miles (100 miles each) to celebrate Soroptimist International’s centenary since the first club was started (in 1921 in California). We were generously sponsored by family, friends and fellow club members in aid of Care International.

Care International is a leading charity who are a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to saving lives and ending poverty.  Women and girls are put in the centre because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.

The 100 Mile Walk for Women in April was set up by Care International via Facebook and we could join a group of fellow walkers numbering over 7300 members! Altogether the walkers raised over £160,000 in the month of April – Well done to everyone that took part!

The 5 members of Chester who completed the challenge said what an amazing experience it had been for exercise, morale and contributing to such as amazing charity.
