GReD meets Johan Swinnen during its 2400 km run for cancer patients

From the 21st of Auguts our colleague Johan Swinnen undertook  a journey of a lifetime: running from Leuven to Santiago de Compostela with a backpack filled with hundreds of letters from cancer patients and from people who care about them.

He will run about two marathons each day, on average, to reach hus destinattion for end of september.

Near Perigueux, Jean-Marc Lobaccaro and Silvère Baron met him;  A few kilometers of race to his side to support his run, the rain having invited on the course!

We wish a good race to Johan towards Santiago de Compostela with the GReD support's.
