Four nurses from a Times Territory charity are taking on a mammoth trek in south India.
The women from Keech Hospice, which provides end of life support in the county, will attempt to trek across tough terrain in Kerala, to raise money for the charity.
Kerry Duffy, Shirley Gadsden, Shelagh Mullen and Caroline Roy will take on the challenge of a lifetime early next month.
Shirley said: “We’re worried about what we’re going to face. We’ve been in training as the trek is classed as ‘challenging’.
“It’s three days and we’ll be walking about 15km a day in the middle of nowhere over tough terrain and sleeping in tents.
“When the tough times come, I’ll be thinking of my patients and that will push me through.”

The group departs on Sunday, October 2, and will walk in support of national Hospice Care Week, which runs from October 3 to 9.
