In the charity run 39 runners covered a total distance of 358 km. About 10,000 EUR were collected. The youngest was seven, the oldest 59 years old. "I'm thrilled," says Anne Möller, senior employee. "Despite the heat, many participants ran longer distances than planned. They were spurred on by the cheers of the spectators and volunteers along the route. "The run was definitely a lot of fun. But of course it was also about team spirit: runners & sponsors together for street children and drug addicts. We are very happy about the large number of sponsors", Möller adds.
For the BBQ in the courtyardd and thanksgiving service there was not only good food and fun, but also many reports from our project countries: "Without TMI the cemetery for drug addicts in Svetlargorsk would continue to grow", said Sergej Pishchala, head of the Drug Rehab Center, for example. Ruth Karrer, director in Paraguay, stressed: "In the last 20 years many people have literally been given their lives anew. Jobst Bittner, the founder of TMI, looked ahead in his sermon: "This was just the beginning. Now it is time for a new generation of workers to dedicate their lives to a new generation of children and rehabilitants in our project countries".
