Hike for those who can´t
The story behind
Dear colleagues, friends & followers,
we are Verena and Nadine, two girls from Austria who are passionate about nature and always seek for new adventures!
Last year, we took on the Wicklow Way, a long distance hike from Dublin to Clonegal in Co. Carlow through the beautiful Co. Wicklow crossing the Wicklow Mountains. It took us 5 days to make it to our destination hiking 131 kilometres in total, very exhausting days with a serious test of our physical endurance (definitely should have hit the gym more often) but one of the most rewarding adventures we have done.
This year, we will swap the Irish mountains and weather to a warmer place and will climb the Mount Etna as well as self-guided hikes through national parks in Sicily, Italy, hiking between 150 and 200 kilometres in 7 days. (I know- even more.. definitely will hit the gym beforehand this time...).
For us, hiking is freedom and despite of the uphill struggle, nothing beats the view from the top. A physical challenge, not everyone of us is able to do, which is why this year, WE WILL HIKE FOR THOSE WHO CAN´T:
“Wings for life” is a nonprofit spinal cord research foundation based in Austria with the mission to find a cure for spinal cord injury. Spinal cord injuries generally result in at least some incurable impairment even with the best possible treatment, leaving patients unable to walk in most of the cases.
Spinal cord injury can happen to anyone and is devastating news to patients as paralysis is not considered a widespread condition and therefore investing millions in research to help a relatively small number of people was generally considered an unprofitable endeavour, which needs to change.
We would, therefore, like to take this opportunity to collect money for every kilometre that we walk for those who are not able to. All the money will be donated to “Wings for life” to hopefully find a cure to help people affected walk again.
Our aim is to at least collect 10 EUR per kilometre hiked on the tour and I would already like to thank you in advance for your support to reach the top!
Verena & Nadine
