Going the Extra Mile
We are always amazed at the lengths our supporters go to in support of our mission to provide free and curative cancer treatment to every child in Tanzania. Our friend Jean-Michel however, has given this phrase new meaning!
In an effort to combine his love of hiking and running, he entered five years ago into the world of Ultra Marathons or as he calls them… ‘crazy races!’
His most recent race was the Lavaredo Ultra Trail in which he ran 120km - with a twisted ankle! This year he has been selected to run the New York Marathon and the Ecotrail in Wicklow. The most amazing part however, is that Jean-Michel runs every race in aid of TLM. By the end of 2019 he will have ran 668.2km, not including all the training and practice runs he manages to fit in!
His goal was to raise €1 per every km ran but we know that if we work together we can raise so much more! Please donate via his page here https://www.idonate.ie/fundraiser/11377984_trail-le-monde.html where you will find further info and instructions!
Jean-Michel is not just a long distance ultra marathon warrior or friend to all of us at TLM, he is our hero!
