I have just competed in, and completed, the marathon des sables .

From start to finish you guys have made one of my life long dreams come true. Admin wise you made everything so simple and answered every question in a fantastic time making our journey so much easier. You took the stress out of our entire trip!.

Mari-Mar, you truly are one of life’s genuine, energetic, caring people. You went out of your way for every single person on this trip, often making sacrifices for yourself. When my bags didn’t turn up you kept me sane, helped me get what I needed from everyone else, and to this day I still can’t believe my bag turned up three days into the race in the middle of the desert!!! And having to sleep next to Hully’s “drink” bottle must have made the whole trip even more memorable! Your photos are perfect, your attitude is fantastic and you made my experience one I will never forget (or stop talking about!).

Tent 69 was so much fun and each of us encouraged the others to get through and friends for life were made, perfect match, thank you. We did this race to raise money for charity and Ronald McDonald house Newcastle will be the recipients of over $25000 of which indirectly you have made a massive contribution too, with your support and words of wisdom to both Drew and myself.

Sadly Drew had to cut his trip short as his girlfriends sister had a baby who sadly passed away 11 days later. Ironically the family stayed at Ronald McDonald house so out efforts have already seen the good it can do.

Once again thank you for everything you did for all 41 people, you are an amazing, inspiring woman who will continue, I am sure, to make other people’s dreams come true.

Thank you
