i-MED vision Run for the kids Berlin Marathon '20

5.4 million children worldwide die every year before the age of 5 from complications caused by preventable diseases due to:

LACK OF BASIC MEDICAL KNOWLEDGE
Insufficient basic medical knowledge makes parents and educators unable to recognise warning symptoms of children’s health problems. There is a lack of knowledge about appropriate reactions to diseases, and there are only few possibilities to obtain important information.

-and- 

INSUFFICIENT MEDICAL CARE
Medical care in rural and severely underprivileged areas is insufficient. In the case of a medical emergency, a doctor with suitable expertise is often unavailable.

i-MED vision helps by providing access to:
EDUCATION, KNOWLEDGE, and DOCTORS

I am running the 2020 BMW Berlin Marathon in order to raise funds supporting the i-MED vision mission, and help bring EDUCATION, KNOWLEDGE, and DOCTORS to the those children in need.
We need to raise an initial 100€ as quickly as possible, and then meet the rest of the target before the first week of August 2020.

42,1 kilometres / 26,2 miles of sweat, pain, and tears are nothing compared to the suffering children are facing around the world. With your support I plan to not only finish the race, but also finish faster than I did 11 years ago (4 hours and 28 minutes...gonna be tough)!

I am looking forward to putting one foot in front of the other to support the children, together we can save lives.

Thank you for your support

Lucas.
