Katie’s Berlin Marathon 2022

Dear Friends and Family,

For 2022, I have set myself the challenge of not only running the world famous Berlin Marathon, but also fundraising £1,000 /$1,300 for Walkabout Foundation and I’m asking for your support!

£1,000 is the equivalent of 4 life-changing wheelchairs for people in desperate need in the developing world. Please help me reach my target this year, and help Walkabout Foundation in its mission to change the world of mobility disabilities – one person, one wheelchair at a time.

Thank you so much for all of your support!

Keith’s London Marathon 2022

Dear friends & family,

For 2022, I have set myself the challenge of not only running the London Marathon, but also fundraising £3,000 for Walkabout Foundation! £3,000 is the equivalent of 12 life-changing wheelchairs for people in desperate need in the developing world.

Please help me in reaching my target, and help Walkabout Foundation in their mission to change the world of mobility disabilities, one person, one wheelchair at a time. Thank you for all of your support!

Support Our Emergency Container for Ukraine

In February 2022, Vladimir Putin launched a military invasion of Ukraine. A devastating humanitarian crisis, fuelled by years of political instability, continues to unfold in the country.

There are 2.7 million people with disabilities currently residing in Ukraine. These 2.7 million individuals form part of the most vulnerable and marginalised. They don’t have the necessary support, resources, or care to help them escape the conflict, let alone recover from their injuries. Meanwhile, women and girls with disabilities face an even higher risk of gender-based violence and their lives are in constant danger.

Last month, we promised you we would find a way to help. And we’ve done just that! After many calls, emails, and countless conversations with experts in the field, we have identified how to help. Together with our long-standing partner, Momentum 4 Humanity, we will send 100 wheelchairs to a distribution centre in Lviv and distribute them to those most in need.

As we continue to #Pray4Ukraine, we ask for your support in providing 100 wheelchairs to those who have lost everything and need to flee the country. One wheelchair costs us £250, including the order, shipping and distribution. Please, help us help Ukraine today and donate to our emergency container. Click the donate button to help us change 100 lives in Ukraine. 

Pavlos’ Christening in support of Walkabout!

Dear friends & family,

We are so excited to welcome you in Milan in a couple weeks’ time to celebrate our little Pavlos!
Your presence at the christening is a gift in itself, however if you wish to buy a present for Pavlos, we invite you to change someone else’s life instead.
Walkabout Foundation in on a mission to provide wheelchairs to those who can’t afford them, thereby restoring their dignity, freedom and independence while also funding research to find a cure for paralysis.
We hope you join us in supporting this great cause and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We can’t wait to see you all soon!
Lots of love,
Dimitris, Evi, Christos and Pavlos

Delfina and Andrea’s Birthday Campaign

Dear Friends & Family,

As you may know, this March is a big month for our family! Not only do we celebrate a lot of birthdays, but at the end of the month, we will also be relocating to Italy after a lifetime in London.

On March 6th and March 19th, Delfina and Andrea will be celebrating their birthdays and saying good-bye to their London friends with their own respective get togethers. Well, it’s not really good-bye but “thank you” for being such a special part of their little lives.

And so, we ask that you come celebrate with us, and in lieu of any birthday gifts, consider making a donation to Walkabout instead. Your presence is truly our gift, but seeing as we have packed up our house and all our belongings, a contribution to help a child in need receive a much-needed wheelchair would mean everything to us.

With love,

Carolina, Delfina & Andrea
