North Cyprus – Charity – Stepping Out for Tulips at Cafe George, Girne


Stepping Out for Tulips

at Cafe George, Girne

Message from Carole King and Sue Tilt of Tulips……..

Hello readers,

On Sunday 2 October, as many of our Steppers that could make it met up at Cafe George to share their total steps and the money they have raised so far.

It was great to meet up and feel the enthusiasm and pleasure they all had in achieving their 300,000 steps for the 30 days of September and to realise that we will have made a significant sum of money for Tulips/Help Those With Cancer Association.

Sue and I were delighted to meet up and be able to thank personally all the wonderful people who took part in this event. Our sincere thanks and gratitude go to all our other Steppers who were unable to make it.

Hippocrates is quoted as saying “Walking is a man’s best medicine” – and if the joy and obvious health benefits are anything to go by, he was absolutely right….

We thought it would help to tell everyone the total number of steps taken so far by our 22 steppers who have completed the challenge – this so far is a staggering 7,095,407!

This equates to 3,547 miles or 5,676 kms and we still have one lady who has to complete the September challenge as she tripped and badly hurt her foot and 2 ladies who are taking on the challenge during October because they were away in Sept! So a lot more steps to come.

To put this into perspective, the coastline of Cyprus is only 402.6 miles or 648km according to Wikipedia – so this is the equivalent of walking 8¾ times around Cyprus? Or we would have almost walked from London to Washington DC which is 5,913kms. Might have got a little wet along the way!!

One of our lady Steppers was a little disappointed not to lose any weight as she thought she would, however she is delighted with the new shape her body is taking on … her bum is disappearing fast!!

Thank you for your support, as always.
