Serge Roetheli Running In Africa

Kankouran – Rivers

In February of 2000 Serge Roetheli and his wife Nicole, began a journey of epic proportion, which took them across five continents over a five-year period. He ran at a pace of 7000 km (4,375 miles) per year while she rode a motorcycle by his side. 

They hoped to increase public awareness of the plight of children around the world. The couple’s impetus was to promote children’s rights worldwide and to help finding effective ways to defend their rights and building support for their cause. 

They logged 40,000 km (25,000 miles) by foot by the time they returned to Europe. Heroes.
