DON’T RUN FROM CHALLENGES, RUN OVER THEM.
You are reading the story of an adventure, leading friends; lucky enough to have 2 good-functioning legs; to celebrate it by using these legs beyond what is commonly done: each team member will try to run approx 2 days and nights, almost non-stop, across Reunion Island (French island in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar and 175 km / 109 mi southwest of Mauritius), covering a distance of some 165 km and climbing some 10 000 meters of elevation… Crossing deep lush forests, winding around active volcanos, on stiff slopes, rocky stairs, etc.… All of this, under a tropical climate… All this to collect funds for the cause mentioned here below.
This story is a tribute to life, a story which starts with a dream, then it is about… perseverance, resilience, pain and joy. A story of “sharing”, reminding than together we can go very, …very far. This is what “Million Steps 3070” is about.
But…. Not only.
A PROJECT TO SUPPORT RESEARCH ON RARE DISEASES
This project aims at supporting people.
Which people? First: for all the children who must fight against a rare disease preventing them sometimes to walk as early as the other ones, facing numerous health issues, and their for their parents who do their best to support these children to cope with this difficult destiny. We are doing all this to support research on rare diseases. This is indeed the societal target of the project “Million Steps 3070”.
We hope that our project will inspire some of you to imagine your own projects, aiming at helping the others. We hope also that, in return, these projects will help you to become the best version of yourself. All the best and enjoy the journey!
With Love for all the children who are learning to walk.
