Thomas Fahey, co-owner and instructor at Synergy Dance Fitness and Tai Chi in Aptos, today embarks on a trip to China and Vietnam. The trip is an incredible example of crowdfunding from Aptos to Asia: it’s all been made possible thanks to the incredible and generous contributions of dozens of local folks from in and around Aptos.
Last November, Thomas climbed the stairs at Depot Hill in Capitola for twelve straight hours, to both bring attention to his GoFundMe undraising campaign and to show the power of Tai Chi practice and mindfulness. As Thomas says on his GoFundMe page, the purpose of his trip to Asia is:
…to deepen my understanding and skill in the internal arts in order to more greatly impact my community.
This will be an amazing trip for Thomas, one that is certain to have great significance in his life, and will deepen and enrich his teaching at Dance Synergy in Aptos. Thomas has set up a blog to document the trip and you can check it out here.
Thomas made a video thanking all his supporters, and it is below. Everyone please wish him well on his trip – and it’s not too late to donate! The GoFundMe page is still active and accepting donations.
