2018/09 - Patrik raises 5.194€ for the orphan children in Meki with #Ironman4Meki
#Ironman4Meki (http://www.ironman4meki.org) is an initiative started by Patrik Birkle, promoting the Fundacion Pablo Horstmann in Meki from Europe with the support of Qello Degaga, a beneficiary of the Orphan and Vulnerable Children Program (OVC). In a video, we get to know Qello and her dream of becoming a doctor.
On 22nd September, Patrik completed the Ironman Emilia-Romagna in Italy for Meki’s orphan children. The goal was to raise the annual cost of two children for every mile completed in the Ironman: 140 miles = €28.000. He put € 5,000 as the first goal to cover the expenses of the first 50 children and he did it!
Everyone counts with a team behind ourselves that supports us in reaching our goals. In Patrik’s case, he gets support from his family, friends, coach, training partners and many more - Qello’s team consists of her host family, the Fundacion Pablo Horstmann, her social assistant, doctors and professors. Qello’s dream is to be a doctor, Patrik dreams of qualifying for the Ironman World championship in Hawaii 2019.
