M.A.D. began its incubation in 2013, when Sharon decided to walk 152km in Scotland. She hit on the idea that it would be a great opportunity to raise funds. Her chosen charity was Restmount Children’s Holiday Home.
After successfully completing that walk, she started planning her next walk. When her regular walking partner couldn’t commit to the walk, Carol, Janet and Karen stepped up. The 4 took on 96km in Croatia.
As if the walks weren’t enough, Sharon decided that an annual fundraiser would be a great way to raise even more funds for Restmount. Fast forward to 2016. Walking morphed into a school reunion walk in Greece. Come 27th September, 12 ladies who all matriculated from Grosvenor Girls High, Bluff, Durban, South Africa, in 1979; will be meeting up in Santorini to take on a 66km walk which spans Santorini and Naxos. Once again, the intention is to raise funds for our chosen children’s charities, and, to make a difference in a child's life somewhere, no matter how small.
