They did it! A big congratulations to all of our amazing walkers and cyclists who took part in this year’s Nazareth Challenge. Our walkers followed a route known as the Jesus Trail, retracing the steps of Jesus through the Holy Land. At the same time our cyclists made their way along the Jordan Valley, taking in the sights from Petra, the top of Mt Nebo and the Jordan River. On the final day both our walkers and cyclists made their way up to Nazareth to finish the event in the Nazareth Hospital EMMS. You can watch their arrival and the start of the celebration in the video below.
Between them they’ve walked over 675km and cycled over 3,700km and most importantly they’ve raised over £50,000 ($70,000). All of the funds raised go towards the Nazareth Trust’s Stoke department appeal. This year we’re raising funds to create Nazareth’s first Stroke department and deliver the life-saving care the people of Nazareth deserve. You can read more about our Stroke department appeal here. A huge thank you goes out to our amazing walkers and cyclists and their incredibly generous sponsors.
We’re already looking forward to our 2019 Nazareth Challenge. We’re in the middle of planning another epic ride and an incredible walk. If the idea of hiking through the stunning landscape of the Galilee or exploring the wonders of Israel by bike, then why not get in touch to find out more.
