Over three days (15 to 17 May 2016) the participants will walk three fairly short legs of the Camino (~20, ~15 and ~13 km), allowing everyone interested to take part. And there will be ample time to see things, go places, rest, and just be together.

At the moment there are 80 participants in the HAE Camino Walk – coming from USA (18), Spain (17), Mexico (11), Canada (9), Argentina (5), Brazil (3), Italy (3), Venezuela (3), Australia (2), Denmark (2), Hungary (2), Japan (2), New Zealand (2), and Sweden (1).

As there is tremendous interest from all over the world the 2016 HAE Global Conference will be a truly global event.

The British graphic designer Leo Griffin of leogriffin.dk has been so very kind to donate a logo for the HAE Camino Walk.
