On February 9, the Heroes of Pauwels Consulting and Medical People completed their first marathon at the Watersportbaan in Ghent, Belgium.
As part of our commitment to the Be A Hero For One Day initiative Niels, Ralph, Klaas, Katia, Christophe and Bert joined forces to run a full marathon… and an additional 5 kilometres! That is more than 47 kilometres in total. And it was a joy to do this! The short video below gives a nice impression of the day.
Special thanks go to Tom and Ester for the moral support! Much appreciated!
Fun to run!
Our running team was quite diverse: Niels is a hare capable of running a marathon on one leg, Ralph and Katia are working towards the Antwerp 10 Miles (Pauwels Consulting and Medical People will participate in the Antwerp 10 Miles – see the list with our running events below), Klaas just wanted a nice cool Saturday run, Bert is an avid runner and Christophe hadn’t trained but he ran his 5 kilometres nonetheless. This proves our point that everybody can run at least 5 kilometres. So why not join us?
