In all honesty the fundraising Trek for my Rafiki 2019 was something that I was NEVER looking forward to. I had so much fear for all that walking (which I found out was actually almost all UP HILL once I got here) and being around so many people for so many days.
Little did I know I would be meeting a bunch of the most amazing, supportive people who would become lifelong friends. I walked harder and longer than I ever have in my ENTIRE life. The pain was so heavy and constant but I continued to remind myself what I was there for and I would just look forward to each walk ending so much so I could then get to drink and hang out with my new friends each night.
We had so many funny, emotional times that none of us will ever forget, and we did it all for *Elizabeth and the children at Rafiki. They learnt more about Rafiki along the way and we all learnt a lot about each other. They accepted my loud and foul mouth and crazy ways and still continued to push through and want to help us. They were beautifully accepting and supportive and I believe they have all returned home with full hearts and wanting to help us even more.
To date they have all raised $52,356 from their epic fundraising efforts.👏
