Caroline Brooks will be hiking the full length of the Lebanon Mountain Trail in just 17 days from Monday 24 September to Wednesday 10 October to raise money to support the AMAR International Charitable Foundation and Her Centre. The Lebanon Mountain Trail is the first long-distance hiking trail in Lebanon which extends from Al-Qbaiyat in the north to Marjaayoun in the south. It is a 440 km (275 mile) trail that passes through more than 75 towns and villages at altitudes ranging from 600 to 2,000 metres (2,000 – 6,500 feet) above sea level and usually takes 26 days to complete.

Caroline’s aim is to raise 20,000 pounds to be split equally between Amar Foundation and Her Centre. Amar Foundation is a charity working in medicine, health, education and basic need provision within refugee and other communities living under stress in Lebanon and Iraq. [Link]

    Let’s hope she makes it in one piece first, and does not get abducted in the process and end up paying 20,000 troy pounds in ransom :P
