The Horti family walk 500 miles, and then walk 500 more

Horti FamilyOn 1 July 2011, the Horti family will take the first steps of their 1000 mile journey around the coast of Ireland to raise money for two children’s hospices.

Beginning their walk at Laura Lynn House, 19 year old Sam and 17 year old sister Annie, will walk with parents Jane and Paul, finishing 8 weeks later on the 26 August.

The Essex family who are fundraising for the Little Haven’s hospice in Essex and Laura Lynn House in Dublin, the first children’s hospital to open in Ireland this summer, were inspired after seeing the comfort and support a hospice provided to close friends who lost a young son.

Mum Jane says “As a parent losing your child must be the worse possible scenario in life.  I will have the luxury of spending 8 weeks with my healthy teenagers and if this can help these families in a small way with out adventure it will be worth every step.”

For more information about the Horti’s adventure, you can visit the family’s website or follow their journey progress on their blog, Facebook and twitter.
