This Sunday, well-known environmental campaigner Cami Appelgren will walk alone from Cirkewwa to Birzebbuga to raise €1,600 for the St John Rescue Corps.

SJRC provides vital backup rescue services to the Civil Protection Department and, since the outbreak of Covid-19, it has become an integral part of a coordinated effort to combat the pandemic.

Ms Appelgren’s journey should take her 32,000 steps (32km) across Malta. “I am raising these funds for those front liners who aren’t in the direct spotlight,” says Ms Appelgren, who recently joined the Corps as a volunteer. “Even though they may not be seen, they extremely hard every day to be prepared for any emergency, and to react to it at a moment’s notice. They were ready long before Covid19 and will be on-hand to assist long after it passes.”
