Virtual Camino Walk
Our virtual walk, Camino De Quarantine is a 114km walk along the French way section of the Camino de Santiago. This year due to Covid-19, we may not be able to go on our annual Camino fundraising trip, which will be a huge loss of income to Focus Ireland. So we have developed this virtual walk for the last section of the French way into Santiago, which you can do here on Irish soil while getting a clear insight into the route and all it has to offer.
All you have to do is set up a fundraising page by clicking ‘get started’ below. Share your page with friends and family for support and walk 114km over 5 weeks!
As you log your distance, you will receive updates about the towns you are approaching, walking notes, recipes for typical foods in the area, recommended books to read on the Camino, films, podcasts and playlists to keep you in the Camino spirit!
Last but not least, your online fundraising page will give you Camino passport stamps (similar to the stamps on the actual trip) for each town you reach. Once you have collected all your stamps and reached your fundraising goal, Focus Ireland will issue you with your own Camino de Quarantine certificate of completion.
The Covid 19 crisis has deeply affected all of our lives in so many ways. But, for the thousands of people living in homelessness or in crowded single rooms in emergency accommodation, the Coronavirus outbreak is a living nightmare.
Thanks to to all our amazing supporters, Focus Ireland was able to help over 550 people secure a home in March this year! Please help us continue this work by taking part in fundraising initiatives such as Camino De Quarantine.
