This September, join the Marie Keating Foundation on the journey of a lifetime. Walk with us on a special one-week trip to the Camino de Santiago.
This trip with feature sessions of mindfulness where we will learn to pay attention to every moment, intently, with curiosity & compassion. If you have been touched by cancer, directly or indirectly, this Camino may be the one for you!
While we will walk the 109km of the Camino Francés to the tomb of St. James in Santiago de Compostela, the mindfulness sessions will be optional, so you can take each day at your own pace and walk either alone or with a group as the mood takes you.
Trip dates: 2 – 9 September 2017
Cost of trip: €2,000 (includes flights, transfers, B&B, dinner, English-speaking expert guide and fundraising for the Marie Keating Foundation).
A deposit of €300 is payable on booking your place. A further €700 is due by 19 May 2017 to secure your place. The balance is due by 11 August 2017.
Places are very limited, so to find out more or to reserve your place, please email Fiona at email@example.com or call her on 01 628 3728. To request a brochure please complete the booking form below.
What will I need to take part?
- The Marie Keating Foundation trip to the Camino de Santiago will involve walking about 20km per day so you will need to be reasonably fit.It is possible to get a taxi to the hotel if you get tired during the day (at your own expense) but to get the most out of the trip, we recommend that you be fit and healthy and have the permission of your doctor to come with us.
- You will need to be able to fundraise €2,000 to cover the cost of the trip. Don’t worry though, the Marie Keating Foundation fundraising team are behind you 100% to give you fundraising ideas and support to help you reach your target!
Where will the funds from the Camino De Santiago trip go?
All the funds raised from the Marie Keating Foundation trip to the Camino de Santiago will go to our Comfort Fund, so that the Foundation can continue to give grants to people experiencing financial difficulty as a result of their cancer diagnosis. Comfort Fund grants help people meet the cost of items such as heating bills, oil fills, basic everyday household bills and childcare while they are going through their cancer journey.
