When a friend needed a goal and motivation we decided to join him in the MDS. Then, when, our good friends Gavin & Shelley Phillips of Team Hurt2Help suggested we join them in raising money for Facing Africa we thought it was a great idea.


Racing snakes, we are not. Honed athletes with perfect bodies and olympic medals, we are not. But what we do have, hopefully, is enough tenacity and grim persistence to get us through the MDS.

Andrea suffers from a back injury after a road accident so with the help of physio (thanks Kate!), Pirates (thanks Johnny Depp) oops Pilates, and lots of drugs (prescription!), we will be competing in the MDS. We won’t be running but we will be walking as fast as our little legs will carry us!

Poor old Benny who hated cardiovascular exercise of any kind as it interfered with his weight training is growing to enjoy our desert walks, though perhaps enjoy is too strong a word!
