Hi my name is time Tina Clark aka #girlthatwalks
When faced with a health condition in 2014 walking 10,000 steps a day changed my health and consequently my life.
Whilst walking through the African desert on the most amazing Camel Safari, organised by Michelle Richmond as one of her immersion safari’s, I had an idea!
An idea that was going to raise funds to transform the lives of children in dire circumstance across the world.
During the morning, we walked in silence 'A walking Meditation'. As we traversed mountains and desert the words '100k for 100 kids' popped into my head. Initially I had no idea what this meant but it felt right, as the awe inspiring beauty of nature unfolded before me I mulled the idea over in my mind.
My brain was thinking if I could raise $100,000 then I could help 100 kids, simple!
But how was I going to do this?
Then like a lightening bolt it hit me '100 kms for 100 kids', I love walking but what if I could get others join me?
What if I could get a group of people together to walk with me? 10 people to walk 100 kms over 10 days? But what if I could get 100
people all walking 100 kms, each person raising $1000 each, that would
raise $100,000 and with that money we could help 100 kids.
Being a Board Member of the MichelleRichmondFoundation.org the kids I
primarily had in mind were the kids at the Kipchamgaa Children’s Home
in Kenya. We currently have 55 kids in the home, (with the capacity for 80 but not enough funding) but as time has gone on, I wanted to be able to help Australia Kids too so we have partnered with 'The Freedom
Hub' to support rehabilitate children who have been rescued from slavery in Australia.
Our first'100 for 100' walk will run for 10 days from 26th April to 5th May 2019.
How you can participate
It's simple ...
Over the 10 days you commit to walking 100 kms – this can be 10 kms per day, or one day walk 5 kms and another do 15 kms – the choice is yours.
You then invite your friends/ colleague’s/ random strangers to sponsor
you – this is the easy part.
