Walkathon - For Children of VietNam

UPDATE: 

I have been challenged by a dear friend to increase my distance to 21kms and he will donate $100 for every km that I do. 

CHALLENGE EXCEPTED! 

Please show your support and donate to a worthy cause! 

You are welcome to come on the day and join me on the walk as well, or just cheer me on :)

21kms here I come!  :D 
 

Dear Friends,

I'm participating in a Virtue Walkathon on Sunday 22 April, 2018. The Event is held at Footscray Park, Melbourne but since I am based in Sydney, I will be doing the Walkathon in Sydney instead around the Bay Run.  I will be completing 2 circuits of the bay run which is a total of 14kms. I will be raising money on behalf of Hands 4 Hope Charity to help raise funds for 100 corrective surgeries for kids in Viet Nam. Please support me!

Hands for Hope is a grassroots organisation who's mission is to change the lives of disadvantaged children living in remote and rural communities in Viet Nam; primarily through Education but also through a Corrective Surgery program. I'm passionate about both, but today, I'm fundraising for the Corrective Surgery Program.

Every year Hands For Hope aim to raise $30,000 to provide 100 FREE corrective surgeries for children at the cost of $300/case. To date, 1,176 free surgeries have been performed for children across rural Vietnam. 

Please sponsor and join me in this fun and family friendly event! 

Below are some pictures from H4H Living on 5 Mission Trip in 2017 to Viet Nam. If you are interested to know more, please feel free to contact me.

Here’s a smiling face of a boy, so excited he couldn’t wait to have his operation because he knows there’s a great chance he’ll be walking soon instead of been piggy-backed by his father every where to date.

Here is an example of deformed legs. The one on the right was operated on in 2016 and the left was operated on in the 2017 trip. I can’t wait to see how he’s recovering on the Mission Trip this year!

Finally, none of Hands For Hope’s work is possible without the support of sponsors, volunteers and my friends.
