Last Tuesday morning, more than 20 formidable ladies set off on a magnificent walk along the Pilgrims Way, an ancient trail stretching 133 miles across Hampshire, Surrey and Kent. Starting at Eythorne and finishing at Dover, not only did these women conquer a fair challenge, but made every step count by supporting Chana, the leading Jewish fertility organisation in the UK.

During the walk, the ladies listened to a specially produced podcast on Menopause and its connection to fertility. The podcast, the latest in Chana’s ‘Unexpecting’ series, entitled Menopause Matters, features Fabiana Abadi, Health and Wellness Coach, in conversation with Dr Veronique Berman, Scientific Advisor at Chana.

After crossing the finish line, participants were met with a hot cup of tea and a personal footbath graciously hosted in a Dover home.  During the evening, Chana’s Honorary Executive Director, Mrs Carolyn Cohen, and Dr Berman spoke about the synergy between Chana’s Medical Panel and therapeutic team, and how this 360-degree support enables couples to access their best treatment options.

The ladies enjoyed a well-deserved BBQ dinner before travelling back to London. One of the participants shared her excitement on the journey home, saying:. “We all had a fabulous time and can’t wait for next year!!”

Chana is immensely grateful to our wonderful sponsors: Odelia’s Kitchen, B7active, School Hire and Peter Gaffney, PGPT, Personal Training.
