The Boy Scouts from Chapel Hill, North Carolina just raised over $6,000 for the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and walked the Camino from St. Jean Pied de Port to Finisterre. The full story here. I loved this quote from their trip leader Brian Burnham: 

“Blistered feet? The Camino doesn’t care. Wet clothes? Camino doesn’t care. Music and dogs barked all night and you didn’t sleep at all? Camino doesn’t care. Got food poisoning and threw up all night? Guess what, you’re putting in 30k at 7am. So to be in high school and to conquer the Camino in all of its relentlessness, I can’t imagine that there can be that many challenges that really seem daunting in the near future.”
