In the summer of 2017 we got the idea of running 100 km for the fun of it. The thought hit us on monday and we started our run that very same week. But 100 km turned out to be a bigger challenge than we expected and we had to stop after 73 km. In our loss and pain we made a promise: to run the same course and complete it the next summer. Now we are better prepared and are even more motivated since we're doing it for a good cause.
We want to raise funds for breast cancer research since breast cancer affects so many families. Join us and support breast cancer research by donating to the pink ribbon. No amount is too big or small. You can follow Bold100 on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and through our webpage.
