My story

*** For English see below ***

Mein bester Freund ist eines morgens aufgestanden und hat beschlossen einen Marathon zu laufen - an diesem Tag. Ich hatte das Glück ein Teil von dieser großartigen Leistung als sein persönliches Versorgungsfahrrad zu sein. Warum ich euch das erzähle? Weil mein bester Freund unter Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) leidet, einer seltenen Krankheit die bei geringster Reibung zu Blasenbildung der Haut führt, auch Schmetterlingshaut genannt. Aber das hat ihn nicht davon abgehalten sich seinen Traum zu erfüllen einmal einen Marathon zu laufen. Sein Kampfgeist inspiriert mich dazu, meinen ersten Marathon (in London 2023) einer Spendensammlung für DEBRA zu widmen, damit viele andere, die an dieser extrem schmerzhaften, genetischen Hauterkrankung leiden, eine Chance bekommen zu kämpfen.

Bitte unterstützt mich und DEBRA um den Schmerz der Schmetterlingskinder zu stoppen!

One day my best friend got up in the morning and decided to run a marathon - on that very day. I was lucky enough to be part of this great achievement as his personal supply bicycle. Why am I telling you this? Because my best friend suffers from Epidermolysis bullosa (EB), a rare disease that results in easy blistering of the skin from minor friction, also called butterfly skin. But this didn't stop him from fulfilling his dream of running a marathon. His fighting spirit has inspired me to dedicate my first marathon (in London 2023) to raise money for DEBRA, so that many more who suffer from this extremely painful, genetic skin blistering condition get a chance to fight.

Please support me and DEBRA to #StopThePain of the butterfly children!

“Like the marathon, life can sometimes be difficult, challenging and present obstacles, however if you believe in your dreams and never ever give up, things will turn out for the best.” - Meb Keflezighi, U.S. Olympic marathoner
