Walking for the blind.
Remember Fred Hollows? Well this coming May, myself and 3 other amazing women and friends are taking part in the Melbourne Coastrek to raise money for the Fred Hollows Foundation. This trek can be physically, mentally and emotionally challenging but at the same time will be one of the most rewarding things we have done.
We will be raising money to support and restore sight to people living with unavoidable blindness in over 25 countries around the world as well as in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
Four out of five people in developing countries are blind but actually don’t need to be. But along with these stats, blindness discriminate and 55% of the world's blind are women. Pretty terrible, hey ?
So along with supporting the blind, we are also investing in women, who are often the caretakers, young girls who have to leave school to look after family who are blind, therefore often missing out on education. The impact is huge.
So Tammy, Suzy, Rachel and myself are trekking to restore sight. We would love it if you could get behind us and support us supporting the Fred Hollows Foundation.
Lots of love,
Thank you to my Sponsors
