What we're about
This is a group for people that enjoy walking and Going the Extra Mile... by participating in a 50km endurance walk. The purpose of this meetup is to provide training walks in the vicinity of the GTEM route.
You will be walking along well worn shared paths and tracks that wind their way from Jells Park up and into the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. Your walking course will take in peaceful parklands and breathtaking vistas overlooking the cityscape of Melbourne. The walk is aimed at creating homes for Uganda's orphans working with HopeBuilders International who operate a village of homes for orphaned children... through the funds raised by those who sponsor you to walk!
Go The Extra Mile will help you attain the mental and cardio-vascular condition necessary to undertake a serious challenge. You will walk with friendly, like-minded people from all walks of life & backgrounds.
To give everyone a great Meetup experience, remember the golden rule of Meetup once you RSVP:
"Always update your RSVP to tell us if you're NOT coming"
If you do RSVP to an event then I do expect you to attend. If you can’t make it then please try to update your RSVP status as early as possible and certainly prior to the deadline as this will enable those on the wait list to get a place.
