Local Moms Embark on a Trek to Guyana | Greenwich Moms

Local moms, Victoria LaMura-Finnerty and Romona Norton, have teamed up to garner support from the Greenwich community. On October 15th, Victoria and Romona will embark on an expedition of Guyana as part of an organization called Trekking for Kids. Their hard work and dedication to helping others is truly inspiring.
Trekking for Kids (TFK) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, which organizes purpose-driven treks for socially-conscious hikers in some of the world’s most remote and iconic locations. A Trekking for Kids expedition is like no other because it provides Trekkers with a truly unique opportunity to combine their thirst for adventure and the outdoors with their desire to help those less fortunate. TFK focuses on the orphans who live in the shadows of the world’s most coveted adventure destinations.

Since its inaugural Trek in 2005, Trekking for Kids volunteer Trekkers have been spreading hope to orphans across four continents impacting the lives of hundreds of children. The hundreds of thousands of dollars raised have been contributed to one-time high-impact infrastructure and sustainability projects at the orphanages such as much needed repairs to the facilities, new buildings, furniture, livestock, education, and even a grocery store. These projects are aimed at providing these orphanages a boost towards internal sustainability.

Each participating Trekker pays for his or her own travel and trip expenses and commits to raising a minimum of $1000. 100% of the money raised by the Trekkers are combined to fund high-impact infrastructure and sustainability projects at the orphanages located in the area where the expedition takes place. In addition, the funds aid in the acquisition of supplies such as clothing, medicine, educational materials, sports equipment, toys, and other specific items.

100% of the donations you solicit go directly to fund projects at the orphanage. If excess funds are raised for a particular Trek, those funds are either used for additional projects at the orphanage or are added to our Orphanage Sustainability Fund to support future or current orphanage projects.
