THE "CAMINO POR AMOR" WALK IS BACK AND THE CHALLENGE IS EVEN GREATER THIS YEAR!
The Challenge: To walk 585km (364 miles) over 7 days through difficult terrain, climbing up mountains with an altitude of 14,300m, trying to avoid gang areas and dealing with extreme temperatures and dangerous roads. On average Duncan Dyason and Steve Poulson will have to walk 85km per day.
The Route: Dunc will start in the centre of Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras and walk to the Street Kids Direct Mentoring Centre in Guatemala City. Steve will start in Guatemala City and walk to Tegucigalpa. Both will have a support team and will meet half way in Honduras. They are hoping to have live video links and GPS locators throughout their journey.
The Dates: Sunday 8th July - Sunday 14th July 2018
Why do this? Dunc and Steve want to raise £10,000 ($14,000) for the projects they work with in Guatemala and Honduras. They both live in Central America as volunteers for Street Kids Direct and work daily with children and young people who either live on the streets or are at high-risk of living on the streets.
