« Walking Is The Best Medicine » is doing!
It is with proud, passion, enthousiasm and excitement that I, Mark Verdonschot, go for a walk all over the world to raise money to improve my platform and fulfill my lifemission. At the current moment I am walking the TA trail in New Zealand.
WITBM is a platform that supports people with emotional problems, depressions and addictions and help them to change their lives. I also struggled with these things quiet some time in my life. Knowing and feeling what their struggles, emotions and needs are, gives me that advantage in understanding and making a difference. Together with my 16 years of working-experience in healthcare, my total life (almost 38 years) experience and all my walking experiences, it is now time to help other people. And the point where I am today, dealing with life on a worldtrip (but due to covid-19 stuck in one country), developing this initiative shows that my own medicine works and that is walking! Synthetic medication, drugs, alcohol, addictional behavior and depressive thoughts don’t do the job!
Walking in nature, coaching and going on a trip away from the things, patterns and negative thougts that don’t help, give people the kickstart, motivation, healthy patterns and positive mindset they need. That is what WITBM (Walking Is The Best Medicine) provides.
« I want to be the bridge between thinking and doing for people who need it but don’t know how to make that first step » With the money we can be that bridge together and give them a real opportunity to make a change. It is my lifemission. This 100.000 euro represents for example
- 600 individual walking/coaching sessions, or
- 2200 groupwalks in a natural and helping environment, or
- 130 kickstart-retraites providing healthy food, accommodation and walking/coaching sessions for one person for a week, or
- a combination of all of the above
Support this initiative and be the change you want to see in the world! Thank you for listening and your donation!
