Jakobsweg sign

Will you come walking with HAEi in Vienna?

In order to raise awareness, HAEi brings together HAE friends – patients, relatives, caregivers, doctors, nurses, and industry – for the HAEi Jakobsweg Walk 2018.

 

“After the successful HAEi/AEDAF Camino Walk on the Camino de Santiago in Spain in May 2016 and May 2017, we are organizing yet another walk. Once more we will bring together HAE friends – patients, relatives, caregivers, doctors, nurses, and industry – for the HAEi Jakobsweg Walk 2018. Just as for the previous walks this is a mutual experience to commemorate the global hae day :-) and this time we will be walking part of the Jakobsweg – that is German for “The Way of St. James” – pilgrimage route through Vienna, Austria”, says HAEi Communications Manager Steen Bjerre.

 

While in 2016 and 2017 all participants walked all stages this time the idea is to accumulate walkers:

 

“We will most likely start out with a pretty limited number of pilgrims in the morning, add some at the beginning of stage 2 and then even more – no doubt the majority – at the beginning of stage 3. And should anyone feel like more they can sign up for the second days of walking. The price for participation is the same regardless if you walk one, more or all stages”, says Steen Bjerre.

 

The HAEi Jakobsweg Walk 2018 program consists of four consecutive stages. It is entirely up to the individual walker if he or she wants to take part in just one, more or all of the stages:

 

16 May 2018

Stage 1 (Schwechat to Basilika Kaisermühlen): 12+ km = approx. 2 hours 30 minutes

Stage 2 (Basilika Kaisermühlen to Stephansdom): 5 km = approx. 1 hour

Stage 3 (Stephansdom to Schloss Schönbrunn): 6+ km = approx. 1 hour 30 minutes

 

17 May 2018

Stage 4 (Schloss Schönbrunn to Jakobskirche Purkersdorf): 12+ km = approx. 2 hours 30 minutes
