Setting out on Friday 19 April, they have 48 hours to complete the 100 kilometre trail.

Meet the Team

From Robyn: “I didn’t hesitate in saying yes when asked to join one of the teams for this walk. Part of the reason for this is that I tend to embrace most opportunities for testing my endurance with outdoorsy activities. There’s no way this is going to be a walk in the park (ha!) and it’s only just sinking in as to the commitment I’ve made. But I feel reasonably comfortable right now because of the kindness and compassion of the team and the generosity of our Sangha. Bring it on!
I will be so pleased if the efforts I make help support the Dharma in Melbourne. I couldn’t think of a worthier cause.”
