This year Tanyel’s smile stretched all the way to Sydney Australia, Blackmores Sydney Marathon to help children with cancer.
It was absolutely awesome experience running through Sydney, starting at the famous Harbour Bridge and finishing at Sydney Opera House. A massive thanks to our family in Oz, Seval Aysel and Deniz, and to you all for your support and generous donations together we have reached just under £1,000.
Today is the day! My first organised event for a very special girl, my beautiful cousin .. my little sister.. my best friend.
We have raised over £1,000 for a special charity, which will give more smiles to children and their families with cancer in Northern Cyprus. I loved every minute and the effort that I’ve spent for planning, arranging, designing, and preparing for this organisation.
I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone at @helvaderelondon for supporting us and making this event extra special, and a big thank you to everyone who came along to celebrate with us.
What an amazing and rewarding job @gulayuzunx and @ceyhunjay are doing in memory of Tanyel, supporting other children and their families going through trauma of cancer. A massive thanks to Helvadere and their staff for organising this event they were absolutely brilliant food was so tasty also massive thanks to the Julie Lodge @ Pavilion for proving lovely flowers for our prize.
Yesterday we had a great day meeting up with and sharing a special day with the children and their families undergoing treatment for childhood cancer. Our first stop was something to eat at Ezic restaurant and then the kids had the chance to pick a new pair of trainers.
A massive thank you to Ritvan and his staff at Ezic, to övgü at Kemal Saracoglu and to Ali basman and his sales team at Nike Basman. Also, special thanks and condolences go to Ada’s mum and dad, Guluzar and Murat, our bereaved parents.
Thank you so much to everyone who has made this possible and continues to support us. We continue to smile for Tanyel because you were a very special kindhearted young lady . You continue to make mummy and daddy so proud/
Love you always ?#nikelefkoşa #başmangroup #kemalsaraçoğluvakfı #eziçlefkoşa #childrenwithcancer #coçukkanseri
On Sunday 11th November 2018 I’ll be running the 36th Athens Authentic Marathon in memory of Tanyel . This will be my 3rd Marathon this year and this one for sure will be the toughest of all with plenty hills to run (or walk). Please please help me reach my target of £500 by sponsoring me on this link every penny helps giving smiles back to children going through trauma of cancer .
There are many ways in which you can support us. Yana Smith, a friend of Tanyel’s who shared a love of gymnastics, decided to shave her hair for Tanyel’s Smile .
We can’t explain how proud we are of her, it was a fabulous gesture and great fund-raising from Yana. As she put it…..
I honestly cannot put into words how touched I am by all your amazing kind words and generous donations. I started this fundraiser thinking I would struggle to meet £200, and you smashed it in less than 24 hours! Today we hit £500 and I’m bald as a….
Tanyel was such a big part of my life as a child and she should still be here today, spreading love and kindness like she always did. Luckily her beautiful parents Gulay and Ceyhun continue to do this with their charity in her memory, Tanyel’s Smile, which is where your donations are headed!
I’m honestly so overwhelmed, and promise I’m not having a quarter life crisis, a bit of hair is nothing in comparison to the lives of children suffering from cancer and their mums, dads, sisters and brothers
This week Cey completed the BMW Berlin Marathon in memory Tanyel’s Smile and raised about £200. A big thank you to everyone who provided sponsorship. It was very hot weather but an awesome race. As you probably know the world record was broken by Eliud Kipchoge (he finished a little ahead of Cey).
Cey’s next marathon will be Athens on the 11th November 2018. Any support you can offer will be gratefully received,
