Sometimes I take on crazy challenges - it’s rare that I do them with my kids.
Because kids (as lovely as they are), don’t always seem to be utterly on board with my challenges...
But this time - they have asked me if they can take me on an adventure.
One that involves walking between 16-26 miles
To give you some background....
In July 2019 - my older two kids are going on an amazing experience.
They are going on a sports and cultural tour to South Africa with school. One that will also involve them spending time with the Goedgedacht Trust, whose focus is on helping rural children and youth in West Coast and Boland towns to break free from the cycle of generational poverty.
The Path Out of Poverty or “POP” program seeks to transform rural communities, by offering the next generation of children the opportunity to become healthy, self-confident, educated young people. They will take part in POP activities such as assist in the Kindergarten , the after school club and undertake some sports coaching.
Hopefully they will make a difference.
Obviously this trip is expensive and the kids are keen to help pay their way or at least do something incredibly challenging in return for sponsorship. I’m really proud that they want to help!
So in 3 weeks - myself, and my two thirteen year olds will attempt the Yorkshire three peaks - we won’t stop until we have completed two peaks - but if daylight is against us we will stop there - but both are keen to smash the challenge in under 12 hours....
I’m just hoping we all survive.
Because have you ever walked any distance with a teenager????
Especially in an area without WiFi....
So, in order to help fund their trip they are asking for sponsorship to take on the challenge of the peaks.
If you would like to donate, it would make their day, and hopefully spur us on through the miles!
