Activity for Life

The Activity for Life has become an annual awareness and fund raising activity for Cancer Support France. Since the first event in 2015 it has gone from strength to strength. From long rides across the country, along the Canal du Midi, up and down the hills of the Lot, the Activity for Life has been a great way to raise awareness, and funds, for Cancer Support France, whilst at the same time making new friends, reconnecting with old friends and generally having a fun time. As we had a short break from organising this event in 2023, this is the 9th Activity For Life.

We are looking forward to discovering the beautiful Medoc region this September, with cycle rides, walks, longe cote (aquatic walking) and other social activities, there will be something for everyone. Join us for the full five days, or just for one or two. With a final flourish in Bordeaux on Sunday 15th September, this will be a trip to remember!
