First, I motivated myself for the race to do some sport. I realized that I was not practicing enough and that I was quickly breathless. In addition, to have another inspiration, I thought why not run for the good cause and MSF, and not only for myself.Do you think that “wearing the MSF colours” will help you during your run?
It gives a lot of motivation. I already collected 160 € in a short period. People are eager to support me when they know why I am running. I am really happy to see people’s enthusiasm when it comes to solidarity.What is the main challenge for you?
Starting to run is already a big challenge for me, because I am not really sporty. Sport was my obsessive fear at school.By taking part in this Solidarity Challenge, you help MSF to vaccinate and save children. How does this make you feel?
When we know why we do something, for whom, and especially which people it could help, we feel really proud to be part of this adventure with MSF.Which methods do you use to promote your action in order to collect your donations?
For now, I sent mailings and I did an interview with my colleague Ron Tuffel on the radio. He is a former sport teacher; he is kind of my coach and gives me advice for the race. After that, there were donations on my Alvarum page.Do you think that you will easily reach your fund-raising objective?
I hope so! Otherwise, I’m committed to complete the fund-raising myself. In March, I’m going to send mailings again and I think I will reach my goal.Your message to the others runners registered to the ING Night Marathon to encourage them, as you will, to raise the MSF Solidarity Challenge?
The others marathon runners are maybe more sporty than me, they might have more visibility. So applying oneself in your own capacity for a good cause is a really good choice. Motivate yourselves and take up the MSF Solidarity Challenge!
