200KM - Bhutan the Last Secret
Run for the CCCL

On May 26th 2017, four athletes from different nationalities, backgrounds and experiences are taking on a challenge to run 200km in Bhutan, for Vanessa.

We have run in the desert, jungle, mountains, and snow but never in the happiest country on earth!

The race is self-supported, held in 6 stages across a distance of 200km and an altitude of 3500m. Most of the course is in remote areas and not accessible by vehicles. The journey is through rural villages, century old farmhouses, small cells of young monks and camps, finishing at the most spectacular and mystic monastery hanging in the cliffs, Taktshang Goemba, also known as “The Tiger’s Nest”.

The objective is to fundraise USD 10,000 which will be dedicated to the Children Cancer Center of Lebanon (CCCL) in aim to help Vanessa survive the battle.

Even though we all go through individual struggles in life, it is amongst the greatest pleasures to extend a hand and help someone out.

Your donation "CAN" save a life! Help us make a difference in Vanessa’s Life

Vanessa is a 4 years 4 months old girl diagnosed with ALL in October 2015.

She is currently receiving her treatment at the CCCL.
