Rotarians Mike Burcombe and Derek Haines are soon to embark on their trek across Corsica, which they are undertaking in order to raise money for Jubilate. The 200 kilometer trek will follow the GR20 trail, which is widely regarded as one of the most difficult hikes in the continent of Europe.
Jubilate is a non-profit organization that offers an after-school program for disadvantaged children. In the program, kids are taught to read music and play instruments. They are also provided with food and help completing their homework.
The fundraising campaign was launched at the home of His Excellency, the Governor of the Cayman Islands, Martyn Roper. After opening remarks, a brief video expressing the Jubilate children's gratitude was played. Then, Mike and Derek had the opportunity to speak about their trek and their altruistic motivations to go on such an adventure. After that, the Jubilate children performed classical music, an impressive display of how effective their after school program is.
To read more about the trek, please see the story about it published in the Cayman News Service.
