The Marathon Queen and Her Husband Ran for Love Around the Island, to Raise the Funds

Running for a bigger purpose here! From the Newspapers, translated…

In Twenty-Four Days, She Ran 1,120 Kilometers, Yesterday, They’d Returned Back to Their Starting Point in Luzhou, and Managed to Raise Over $200,000N.T.s for Taidong.

“Your compassions, are what motivated us on running around the island”, the “Super Marathon Queen”, Wnag and her husband, Su started the 24-day long “Running for Love” around the island, a total distance of 1,120 kilometers, and managed to raise over $200,000N.T. for the distant regions in Taidong, and it’d made Wang, who had minor health problems running on the way moved, she told the press, “It’d all been, more than worth it!”

The 48-year-old mother-of three Wang, started running at the very start to lose weight, later, she’d not only lost over 10 kilograms, in 2013, she successfully challenged herself on the competitions around the island, and the following July, she’d gone to France to run another super marathon, received second place in that event, gaining her reputation as the “Queen of Marathon”.

After Wang finished running across Taiwan, it’d sparked Su’s dreams of running across the island to visit too. On April 28th, the couple had a water bag on each of their backs, with a light wind coat, their flipflops, a towel, in the early morning, in the cheering of the running party, they set out from the gates of the Chenggong Elementary in Luzhou.

Wang said, the mission of this trip, is not only to “get her better half of twenty-five years back”, to help him live his dreams, it’s a sort of a second honeymoon for them; but more importantly, before they started off, Su had printed out the bandanas “Running for Love” to sell for charity at $500 a piece, to raise the funds of the Taidong Jiali Li Foundation.

She said, in the twenty-four days, the fund they raised has passed $200,000N.T.s, and a lot of their fellow runners, after they’d sponsored the bandanas, they’d still wired the donations in, said that they wouldn’t need the bandanas sent to them, “Hope to save the bandanas to those who need them”; changing the smaller scale love to a grander scale, the combined forces of the runners community is simply amazing!

And so, this, is how the cycle of kindness rolled bigger, and bigger, and bigger, and it still all started with a thought, that desire, to help the less fortunate out.
