So far we've raised
My wife Julie and I commenced our association with Mongolia in early 2011. It was an adventure that saw us living there for 5 years and growing to love the people and culture. Conditions there were a marked departure from the cosy western standards that we had come to expect from growing up in Oz, although our adequate salary and work conditions meant that we lived very comfortably. The same could not be said for many Mongolians though. It was through the eyes of our friends Julie and Chevy Veloo that we came to see the plight of many displaced families who had, by circumstance beyond their control, been forced into eking out a living scavenging off the Ulaanbaatar garbage dump.
The Veloo Foundation set about “making a difference…one child at a time”. In our time living there we can testify to their noble work and it’s efficacy and have been very pleased to see their goals grow and to be fulfilled in the subsequent years.
We have supported the Veloo Foundation since their inception, so when we heard that they were going to run a Steel Horse Gallop as a fund-raiser in 2024, we jumped at the opportunity. We see this as a great way to continue our association with the Veloos’ and their tireless work, both of which are very close to our heart.
