Camino de Compostela Fundraiser

November 13, 2018| Our Community /

Twenty-five weary participants have just returned home after completing the final section of the Spanish Camino de Compostela.

Walking 115km over six days they were blessed with perfect weather, some authentic historic farmhouse accommodation and knowledgeable guides.

Together the group raised a total of $75,000 towards the Concussion Clinic, research into Alzheimer’s Disease and Cancer Services at Epworth.
