COMMITTEE MEMBER Rick Parkes aged 74 has completed the 817 km walk on the CAMINO NORTE to raise funds for Children in Tawal Nepal for education and health
For Rick Parkes, aged 74, walking 817 km of the Camino Norte in Spain has been quite an undertaking. His motivation was to raise $5,000 to help educate and improve the health of children in the remote village of Tawal.
He visited Tawal in November 2017 and was inspired by the community efforts to improve the lives of their children.
Rick started his walk on 19 April 2018 and 6 weeks later on the 28th May 2018 he completed the 840km.
Well done Rick for raising over $7,400
Thank you to everyone for their support
