Good Eye Podcast – Michael Farley – Proper Walk

Your definition of a “proper walk” is likely very different from Michael Farley’s.

BIO:
Michael Farley is a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, a retired nonprofit CEO, and an adventurer.  He was the leader of Elk Hill, a human services organization based in Goochland VA, for 21 years.  Michael has also led adventure trips in the United States and Kenya for the past forty years.  Through both a global and local “lens”, he shares those adventures, the lessons learned, and relates how the experiences have helped shaped his own personal and professional values, his leadership beliefs, and his continued purpose in life to do good and have fun.

Michael has returned to Kenya over 30 times.  Since 2002, he has organized and led 13 Proper Walks in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley trekking over 2,000km and raising over $950,000 for the Makindu Children’s Program, which supports 560 orphans and is in the same area where Michael served in the Peace Corps.  He has known three generations of Kenyans and has seen firsthand the impact of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in sub-Sahara Africa and the orphans left in its wake.

Michael refers to his Walks as Adventures for a Cause.  And they are real Adventures, complete with wild animal encounters, indigenous tribes, and ornery camels.   Over the years, the Cause has provided thousands of children hope for a much better future.

The Proper Walks have been featured in National Geographic Adventure Magazine and Newsweek.
