“Then, we want to share with you our philosophy: YOUR GOALS CAN BE ACHIEVED, IF YOU BELIEVE IN THEM. This is a very ambitious project, we know, but we are convinced that everybody can do something extraordinary thanks to the motivation. I’m an athlete, not an extraordinary man, but my motivation is so strong that I’ll do my best to reach Adelaide before the plane will leave, and my crew will help me! It won’t be easy, it won’t be without difficulties. But my motivation is not simply based on running from Darwin to Adelaide; we want to help those who would never been able to do it, in improving their life conditions. That’s what we’ll do if we get your support. Your donation will increase our possibility to help concretely AUS Niguarda Onlus, in buying medical devices for spinal cord injuries or Spina Bifida. These devices will allow injured people in going back to sports” says Michele.
