CSF Walk for Life

The annual CSF Walk for Life is just one of many sponsored activities, all across the country, in which members and friends of Cancer Support France raise money to fund their valuable work in supporting English-speaking people affected by cancer. 

In France the statistics are telling: 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer before their 85th birthday. However, because of dedicated specialists, groups and individuals, over 60% will be cured!

The more money we can raise, the more people we can help.  

In the P-O, this will be a day of activities (and picnics) for all, based in the lovely village of Oms (not far from Céret).

There will be sponsored walks (details below) and dogs on leads will be welcome to walk with their owners.

Also on offer will be a (friendly) pétanque tournament, a gentle stroll around the historic village. Or just come and support the walkers and players, enjoy your picnic and the festive (sometimes musical) ambiance.

On site there will be a bar with modestly priced wine, beer, soft drinks, tea, coffee and water, plus home-made cakes and savouries. Also stands with paperback books, greetings cards, music CDs and more.

Cancer isn’t fun, but beating cancer can be!

2024 – springtime (as opposed to autumn)

The Walk for Life will be in Oms this year and as you see it will be a Spring Walk rather than a Summer one!

In the morning there will be two walks (4km or 9km) and a friendly pétanque tournament, for which there is a 5€ registration fee.

There will be a bar and cakes and savouries. Bring a picnic and join in the fun. Oms is a lovely village not far from Céret.


All participants should have insurance cover either as members of an association such as FFRandonnée, or via their personal insurance cover.

Raise funds for Cancer Support France, and La Ligue Contre Le Cancer

Activity for Life is primarily about having fun and raising awareness of the Association and the support available to cancer sufferers and their families, and it’s never too early to get involved!
