Charity Run Around Australia

34, Special Education Teacher

38 , Disability / Mental Health Worker

We are Kristy and Chris. We are travelling around Australia in August 2019 for 14 months for our charity. We are starting on the Sunshine Coast QLD, and heading north around Australia.

Kristy was a Zoo Keeper for over 8 years working with Big Cats and a variety of Australian Native Animals. She has extensive experience in animal husbandry. She also has spent 2 years doing marine education programs with a variety of marine animals with school children. Now she is a special education school Teacher.

Our charity is called Bamboo Projects and we support people with mental illness and disabilities through outdoor activities.
We have an EPIC journey ahead of us where Chris is going to Run / Kayak or Ride his way around Australia, all 16,000kms of it! We have called this the 'Keep Moving Forward' project. This is aimed to show that no matter how hard life gets, you just need to keep moving forward.

On the weekends (Chris's rest days) we will be holding community events in the area we are in for that space of time. We will be aiming to get involved with farming and indigenous communities, as they are the strongest hit by suicide.

Kristy will be homeschooling our two kids along the way as she is a school teacher. Our 12 yr old loves being in the garden and growing his own plants. Our 10 yr old loves the outdoors and would be happiest in amongst the trees! Kristy was a zookeeper for 10+ years, so you know that your pets (if any) are in good hands!

We pretty much just need a comfy-ish bed, a shower that runs for more than 2 minutes to ease the ache in Chris's body after his 50kms a day and we will be sure to leave your house in beautiful condition. We have had experience with petsitting at our house, from a variety of dogs - from Jack Russell's to Border Collies and everything in-between! We are experienced animal sitters and would love the opportunity to meet your furry family members! We are non-smokers / non-drinkers and we are super respectful and quiet.

Thanks! Kristy and Chris

Thank you to Kristy, Chris and their beautifully well mannered boys for looking after our house while we were away. While we were away on our long weekend, Kristy kept me updated by sending texts/pictures of them out and about with our dog Lucky. Upon returning, our house was beautifully clean and tidy and Kristy and her family were packed and ready to go. They took great care of our dog by walking, feeding and playing with him each day. Kristy and Chris are genuine and lovely ... MORE

My dogs were happy and spoilt from lots of pats and cuddles. They went out of their way to help prepare my house for painters, installed my new fridge in the shed and picked up my automatic gate all within the short stay of 10 days. Very reliable and great with communication

Kristy Chris and the boys spend just a few days at my home and the house was left in an immaculate condition on my return. It was a pleasure coming home, apart form a lovely gift and card it was all as I left it. Kristy and I had some conversations about Twinkle and how she went which was a relief to know my cat was in good hands. Thank you so much and best of luck with your continued ventures :)

Kristy, Chris and their boys were amazing. They took excellent care of our fur babies, were great communicating and the house was spotless. I would highly recommend this lovely family and hope I will use them again in the future. Thank you all xx
