The Route

My Walk Across Belize will take us 90 miles in 5 days! Together with my father, Joe, we will begin walking on July 12th at the Benque Border (with Guatemala)  and will arrive in Belize City on July 16th for the start of BCVI Summer Camp.

The Route:
Day 1  Thr. 12th July         Benque Border – Santa Elena
Day 2 Fri. 13th July         Santa Elena – Belmopan
Day 3 Sat. 14th July          Belmopan - Cheers Restaurant
Day 4 Sun. 15th July          Cheers - Hattieville
Day 5 Mon. 16th July          Hattieville – Camp / Belize City

With the success of our Climb at Victoria Peak last year and the local interest to join, we thought it would be perfect to Walk Across Belizeand be able to invite you all to join in on the adventure as we stride to help raise money to provide support for other children who are blind or visually impaired. 

Without your sponsorships the non-profit work that BCVI does on a daily basis will not be able to continue. Whether it’s by getting sponsored to walk, or simply making a contribution, we are grateful for your support.

Funds raised from the Walk will go toward daily support for the children in the Rehab Program. This includes, visits to their homes and schools for one-on-one sessions in all aspects of their daily lives; from counseling parents of newly blind children to working with the teachers in their classrooms providing the necessary training and skills to work with children who are visually impaired.

You can also email for more information or to sign up!
