Yacht Chandlers very own, Brenda Van Zoeren, has decided to take on a HUGE feat this coming Sunday, 28th November in the Nice - Cannes marathon. When there were no spaces left for the half marathon, she became inspired to attempt the full marathon. Knowing Brenda and that she never shies away from any challenge, she will give this her very best efforts. We have no doubt she will succeed, but to give her some added motivation, she is asking for donations to give her run some added meaning. Whilst it will be a life-changing journey for Brenda personally, she would like to contribute to somebody else’s journey.


Enter Maya’s Little Journey….

Don’t let the name mislead you; Maya’s Little Journey, has actually been a huge one. Maya is…kind of indescribable, but we’ll try. She is the kindest, most considerate, most caring of humans. She has lived everywhere and has friends in every corner of this world to prove it. Sadly, despite her kindness, cancer has not been kind to her. It started with one diagnosis which led to another, which unbelievably, led to another. At every stage, she put on a brave face and her famous smile, asked her friends how they were doing, all the while assuring us she wanted to hear the answers. That’s the kind of woman she is.


When we told her Brenda wanted to donate any proceeds to her fund, Maya’s first reaction was “wow, how amazing for her to do the marathon.

Because, that’s the kind of woman she is.

Maya is the kind of woman many of us are; mum’s, wives, friends, confidents, supporters, encouragers, good old belly laugh sharers. And then some. And that’s probably why her story hits home for so many. She’s too wonderful, too young and too much to so many; the void will be huge.

Maya is Australian but due to Covid, she has not been able to visit home nor have her parents been able to visit her in France over the past few years. Her wish is for her children and husband to travel to Australia; any funds raised will be donated to this cause. “Maya’s Little Trip Home”, although sadly Maya will not be alive to see this trip happen, she is at peace with knowing it will happen. Maya’s cancer is terminal & her treatment is now stopped.
