The Mission

The Road 2 Here

In May 2017, four ‘Camino Pilgrims’ will walk the ‘Way of St. James’, a historical 780km (almost 500 mile) journey beginning in the French side of the Pyrenees across northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela.  Each day of their 30+ day pilgrimage will be dedicated to one of our ‘Roadies’, children who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. All CF and DMD Roadies will receive donations from corporate and private sponsors, bringing much needed financial support and public awareness to their fight.
