Wendelin Lauxen 'runs to help children back on their feet'. Wendelin founded the 7 emirates run: an endurance run like no other! Full distance teams of 7 runners and relay teams of 2-7 runners will run 539 kilometres in 7 days... an average of 77 km per day across the UAE. They have raised over 1Mio Dirhams and supported 6 children with prosthesis or orthosis. The run is through all 7 Emirates of The United Arab Emirates. They run for the pure joy of running, to promote a healthy lifestyle and to raise awareness for children who they want to support by raising funds. We will also hear first hand about what it takes to hold so many world records, the training involved, the organization, the fund-raising, and everything behind the scenes!
