The Feel to Heal lap-a-thon was held on Sunday, 28 April 2019. Feel to Heal was initiated by a friend of the Foundation, Renee Waters, in honour of her son’s inspiring Emotional Strength response to leukaemia treatment.
Over 150 participants enjoyed games, dancing, a feelings forest, walking, jogging, shoulder rides and Yelo’s famous banana bread. The only thing outshining the beautiful Perth sun was the warmth from those who attended with open hearts on the day. We are still feeling the glow and wish to thank everyone who participated and donated to Feel to Heal. The funds will go towards the Sharon Faye Foundation’s mandate to build Emotional Strength in the five pillars of society, the first pillar is Family Health.
The Sharon Faye Foundation would like to thank Renee, Lenny and the Waters family for showing us all how to respond with Emotional Strength in the face of intense emotional experience of a diagnosis like leukaemia. Remember, it is not what happens to us, it is how we respond to it that makes the difference
We would like to acknowledge our two sponsors for the event: Best Performance and Yelo Cafe. Also thanks to Sharon’s executive assistant Ash for leading us in an energetic Konga exercise class which was great fun and a warm up.
