Testimonials

“I just wanted to drop you and Cheryl a quick note to say a HUGE thank you for Bloco Fogo’s incredible support yesterday. We’d all really appreciate it if you could share this with everybody who came down on the day? We’ve honestly never had a cheer station quite like it. The team and I are all still in awe of just how amazing you were. A few of them have even said they’re now keen to join a samba band themselves! You gave all of the runners a much needed lift as they passed by on what was a very difficult race day what with the heat. So many of our runners commented on how brilliant you were at our post-race celebration too. And lastly, I just wanted to comment on the fact that you were all such a lovely friendly bunch! It was nice to meet you all and I really hope that everybody enjoyed the day.”
