Thank you all for participating in #MarathonForAll!

Last weekend (30-31 May) we completed #MarathonForAll that was initiated by Ulf Johansson, Mechanical Design Engineer at IKEA of Sweden. Ulf was once the initiator of IKEA Fights Cancer. He decided to run a marathon on his own, at home. And he wanted all of us to join him – on a distance. So together with Ulf, we got together and got moving for a good cause.

This weekend 96 participants completed 1135 kilometre together, that is (26,9 Marathons) Wow what an accomplishment!! Maybe not everyone can run a marathon alone, but together we can!

Ulf wanted to run for a good cause and raise money for UNICEF. Together we supported Ulfs initiative and donated 7978 SEK.
