Wild & Well Festival- come be active and inspired

Monday, August 6, 2018


If you are in England 20-21 October 2018, you should aim to stop by Bristol for the Wild & Well Festival that weekend.  Their tagline is "a new style of wellbeing festival for anyone who want to live in a healthier happier, more connected way."  This totally resonates with my ethos and offers many different classes, workshops, talks, and activities at six venues around Bristol.

I wanted to attend last year but was in the USA for the Chicago Marathon.  This year, however, I am giving a talk about my time in Tanzania, climbing Kilimanjaro.  I am super excited to share my story with you, giving tips on how to plan your trip and what it takes to go on adventures big and small.  The final program is still being developed, but my talk will be on Sunday at Ashton Court.
Second tier tickets are currently available for £30/day or £50 for the weekend.  There are also family tickets available.  You can currently pre-book some of the talks (like mine!) and workshops if there is something you are interested in.

My aim to have my e-book about Kilimanjaro available by this time too.  It will includes tips on preparing, a training guide, packing list, and stories from my trip.  All proceeds will go towards my fundraising goal to help a special needs classroom in Moshi, Tanzania, that we visited on our trip.  This classroom does not have any desks or chairs, which means the special needs children sit on the floor for their lessons.

My goal is to raise £420 (£1 for each kilometer I climbed) towards the £1250 needed to buy this furniture.  If you scroll to the bottom of my Kilimanjaro post, you can read more about the project.

Thanks to friends, family and my local community, I have raised £173 so far.  A desk/chair set is £95 ($135).  You can donate through PayPal any amount you wish with this button.




I didn't stop at Stella Point, but kept going (very slowly) to the tippy top of Kilimanjaro.

Come to my talk at Wild & Well to learn more about this unforgettable experience in nature.
