Our Campaign Storyends 31 Aug 2017, 11:59 PM
I will be embarking on a solo expedition by foot in Mongolia this coming July 2017 for a total of 30 days, covering a distance of up to 800Kilometres. I will begin my journey from the capital Ulaanbaatar and head down south towards my final destination, the Great Gobi Desert, where the temperature will likely be around 40 degrees celsius or more.
I am doing this expedition to raise funds so that the cancer patients are able to receive assistance in the form of financial aid and medical supplies to pay for the cost of their cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, hospitalisation, and medication, in order to help them tide over the difficult periods that they are facing in their lives.
Equally important, this expedition serves to encourage the cancer patients to keep fighting and moving forward with positivity every single day and not giving up hope.
This expedition is going to be really challenging because of all the uncertainties that i will be facing while i am out there in the wilderness. However, i know that as daunting as this may seem, it can never be as tough as what the cancer patients are going through their daily lives battling these diseases all by themselves.
So i hope that this expedition will be able to provide these cancer patients the support, encouragement, as well as financial aid to continue living each day to the fullest, knowing that there will always be people out there who is more than happy to walk this road beside them. Thank you.
