In 2017, Michelle Richmond Foundation Board Member, Tina Clark, was trekking with me in the Matthews Range (also known as the Lenkiyio Hills) in Kenya on a 10-day Camel Trek.
Our days started with the sound of a Samburu Warrior nicknamed ‘Creepy’ waking us up with his song of choice and a bowl of warm water to bathe with before the sun rose. After a cuppa, we would set off on our trek across the desert and mountains at the first glimmer of light, walking in silent meditation until breakfast.
One morning, Tina kept hearing the words “100 for 100” in her head. Bemused by what this meant and with days of walking ahead, she pondered. By breakfast the following day, with some contemplation and exploration, the fundraising idea came to her to walk 10km for 10 days to raise money for 100 kids.
By the time we arrived at our breakfast destination, the inspiration to invite 100 people to walk 10km for days 10 days and raise $100,000 for 100 kids was born.
On Friday 17th May 2021, 100km for 100 Kids fundraising event will come to life and we invite you to join us. Please click on the REGISTER NOW button below to take part in changing a child’s future today.
