weekly photo challenge: adventure!

Posted on Updated on

The Weekly Photo Challenge asked to show “adventure!” We are on a LONG adventure at the moment, embarking on the Way of St James, walking 800 km to Santiago de Compostela. IMG_4837 For anyone interested, you can read our daily reflections. Or you can watch our daily debrief on our Facebook Page.

And although it is our adventure, we are also doing it to raise awareness about Angelman Syndrome.

Have a great week ahead, everyone!!

Each journey starts with a single step – Confucious 

We have broken up this European adventure into stages and we are approaching our final stage. A week from today we will have completed (hopefully) Day 1 of our biggest journeys: 800 km of walking!

It is beginning to sink in and we are a wee bit nervous as we have been “travelling” and not really “training” for it. But at the same time, we are pretty excited as we have reached our fundraising target already so anything else we receive now is an added bonus so if you are interested in supporting our charity, please donate here: https://give.everydayhero.com/au/wise-monkeys-abroad

Who are we raising money for?

We are raising money for FAST (Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics Australia). FAST is dedicated to finding a cure for Angelman Syndrome and related disorders through funding research, education, and advocacy.

What are we raising awareness about?

We are raising awareness for a condition called Angelman Sydnrome which David’s older brother has. So this  is very close to our hearts! Please read more about Angelman Syndrome here: http://www.cureangelman.org.au/whatisangelman/ and more importantly,

Please help spread the word about Angelman Syndrome. 

And so now we count down… day by day …then step by step…. until we complete 800 km!

Wish us luck and thank you to everyone who has shown us their support!
