Time to make a difference

Read about Marc’s journey through Central and South America, first by ATV then on horseback, volunteering for children’s charities in orphanages and schools, helping children with HIV and disabilities and coaching young athletes with Olympic dreams. Truly inspirational reading.

The Long Saunter South

Taxco, Mexico 2012. Jumping on an ATV I set my sights on Peru. Nearly four years later, 5000kms by ATV, 6000kms on horseback and after the most testing, rewarding and eye opening years of my life we are close to realising the goal. To make a difference.

I had previously  reached out to children’s charities in each of the eleven countries I planned to pass, hoping to volunteer with and raise funding for each of the chosen organisations. Never could I have hoped to connect with so many wonderful people or be fortunate enough to be given the opportunities handed to me. From seeing the courage of children born with HIV to having the honour of coaching disabled athletes aiming to compete for a place in the Paralympics.

Too much for one blog so we start at the beginning, Oaxaca, Mexico and my very first volunteer location.
