Meet some Belgian sporting heroes and raise money for a very worthy cause this Saturday 14th October. The charity La Tête hors de l’Eau, which supports and funds reconstructive surgery, artificial limbs and support services for disabled youngsters, is organizing a fundraising relay “marathon” at the Brussels David Lloyd health club. Twenty teams – including one from The Hotel – will take it in turns to run on twenty treadmills until they have racked up a full marathon distance: 42,195 kilometres! Radio and TV personalities will provide real-time commentary and ranking of the participating teams.
In addition to the run, the event will feature demonstrations of Olympic and Paralympic sports by Belgian celebrity athletes, including John John Dohmen, captain of the Olympic silver medal winning Red Lions hockey team, voted best player in the world in 2017. There are also fun activities for children and the opportunity to have your picture taken with some of your sporting heroes.
If you would like to join The Hotel’s team or simply come along to cheer all the athletes on, you can find more details here.
