    Story

    Support: SUICIDE IS NOT A SOLUTION

    Hi all I am Andrea and I am 39. I need your help to make some good out of a tragic event that hit my family and me in 2014. My 25 year old nephew decided that his only solution was to take his own life. I am still angry after his destructive act; so I want to raise awareness of all those people that like Mattia who are thinking of resorting to suicide.

    After 3 years of suffering I decided that is time for me to do something. I cannot get him back, but maybe I can shout so others hear his voice and try to prevent them from doing the same.

    People who know me, know very well that I do not like too much physical activity, and for this reason I decided to walk the CAMINO DE SANTIAGO in just over 30 days. I will WALK 800 KM (500miles) from Saint Jean Pied de Port in France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

    My aim is to raise £300 (less that a third of all the money I will need) which will help me to complete this journey. Any extra pennies will go to CLASP charity, that will help people considering taking their life.
    Please remember that any penny count and if you can donate just 1p, thats ok.

    I will arrive in Saint Jean Pied de Port on the night of the 25th of June and I will start the CAMINO on the early hours of the morning of the 27th. I will have 14 days to reach Burgos where my sister Nadia will join me on the 10th of July and from there we are aiming to reach Santiago in 23 Days.

    We will carry a backpack with Mattia’s picture all the way signed SUICIDE IS NOT A SOLUTION.

    You can follow my journey everyday, I have an app that will track my steps and you can read updates on my

    Buen Camino
