Instead of gifts, John asked staff to donate to this fundraising challenge. He also announced his mission in the school newsletter and at assemblies. He was overwhelmed by the support from students, parents and staff.
“The students were wonderful. They had all sorts of things going on. They had games days, sausage sizzles and those sorts of things to raise money,” said John.
John and Jane had a great time walking the trail. They were thrilled with their guides and group, which covered an age range of 23 to 75. And it certainly proved to be an adventure.
“[My boots] just fell apart. So we strapped them all up with tape and they really looked hilarious … But I loved every minute of it,” said John.
