Friends will walk five miles in the moonlight to honour and remember their friend on her birthday this Saturday night.
A group of 19 women, many from in and around Kenilworth, took part in Myton Hospice’s Moonlight Walk at the weekend.
The friends made the five mile trek under the stars in memory of courageous mum, Coralie Turner who lost her four-year fight with breast cancer in May.
Coralie, who lived in Potts Close would have celebrated her 33rd birthday on Friday.
And in a fitting tribute, her friends decided not to let the day pass unnoticed as well as helping to bring in funds for the charity hospice which helped Coralie and her family so much during her final days.
Coralie grew up on School Lane where her parents ran the camping and caravan business, Somertons of Kenilworth.
She was diagnosed with breast cancer just eight months after the birth of her son, Jamie in 2008.
Her husband, Stuart explained that although they thought she had fought off the disease, in 2011 they were given the devastating news that it had returned and that this time it was incurable.
But he said rather than let it beat her, his wife chose to continue to fight and to live every day to the full with her family and friends around the town.
The team set off from Warwick Castle at 9pm and after huge fundraising efforts, have already smashed their expected £1,000 donations by bringing in £4,300 for the charity so far.
A huge 750 other walkers also got involved in the annual event which includes either a three, five or eight mile course through the night in memory of loved ones.
There was also be live music and entertainment for crowds on the night.
