We are so grateful to the generous hikers and donors (36 in all) who helped us raise over $42,000 in our First Annual Hike for Healing! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to quickly pivot from planning an in-person event to a virtual one, but that turned out to be a good thing. It meant we could invite participants from all over the world! Folks joined us from Canada, Australia, the UK, Japan, South Africa and of course Nepal. Exercise-loving participants logged over 1,800 kilometres hiked, biked, rowed and more!
With 98% of funds going to direct services, the money raised will ensure Nepal House can run for another year. We’ll be able to provide:
- salaries for 3 counsellors
- salaries for 3 teachers
- school meals
- and support to families through the current pandemic.
THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of you that participated. You have helped give Nepal’s children powerful tools to build a better future. Your support means the world to us. Stay tuned for our 2nd Annual Hike for Healing – details coming soon!
