Pauwels Consulting and Medical People run their first marathon

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?
