12th October 2021, Race For Life and Cardiff Shine
Over the past few weeks, members of 4×4 Response South Wales and South West Wales have assisted marshaling charity events across South Wales. We are glad and proud to have helped out at these events. It is always a pleasure to see the attendees enjoying themselves as they help raise money for #RaceforLife and #CardiffShine.
Amongst the joy, smiles, banter and humour which was a feature at these events – let’s not forget for some, it has a particularly poignant melancholy wistful and subdued aspect.
For them, the events they attended are causes close to their heart, or an inspiration that gave them the drive, determination, will power and strength to complete the event often with a tear in the eye at the finish line. You are amazing and your efforts help raise awareness and vital funds to aid Cancer research.
“Saturday absolutely blew my mind. 16.5 hours we were on site for on apparently the warmest October evening on record and the support and team work that came from you all was honestly unreal.
We are all at the point where we are starting to run on fumes now after some of the busiest weeks together and you all just came together and got our one and only Welsh Shine absolutely flying off the ground and made sure it was the best possible experience for our supporters.
The night sky of Cardiff was completely lit up with fairy lights, glow sticks, smiles, tears, laughter, selfies, glitter, adrenaline, excitement, dancing marshals, glowing zone managers and just the best atmosphere.”
“has been beyond a pleasure having you with us at my events, especially in such a challenging year. Each and every responder who has volunteered with us has been charming, enthusiastic, motivating to our volunteers and supporters and I hope this is a partnership that will keep going and going because now you’re a part of the family I’m not letting go”
