We did it! We put in our biggest week of walking yet (and did it in only six days, to boot) to arrive in Santiago de Compostela on Saturday – a full day earlier than we had been planning on.
We walked 177 km this week, but unfortunately did not raise any more money for the Canadian Diabetes Association. We were really hoping to reach our goal of $800 by the time we arrived and, since we didn’t, we have decided… to keep walking! That’s right – our Camino is not finished yet. After a day of rest on Sunday in Santiago, we will lace up our walking shoes once again to start walking to the end of the earth. Literally. We will tackle another 90 km to Finisterra.
We can’t wait to tell you all about our final Camino experiences, but first… we need a little help. We’ll be busy walking for the next few days, so we need you to tweet this article, share it on Facebook, and email it to your family, friends, and coworkers to try and get the word out and the money raised, we would be forever grateful. Then, in three days time, when we reach the end of the earth, we’ll update you on our final Camino stats and reflections, celebrate the fact that we’ve met our fundraising goal (wink, wink), and you can share with us the outcomes of your personal efforts in our Camino challenge to you.
We look forward to hearing your stories and sharing our own. Buen Camino!
