Swiss endurance athlete Serge Roetheli’s thirst for adventure and desire to raise money and awareness for children suffering across the globe propelled him to run a distance equal to the earth’s circumference. Accompanied by his equally adventurous wife Nicole, who drove a motorcycle with their supplies and pup tent in tow, they planned and executed the journey of a lifetime. Leaving from Sion, Switzerland in 2000, they returned five years later having traversed six continents and thirty-five countries. Alone in the world’s most unforgiving landscapes they confronted challenges that threatened to push them beyond their physical and emotional limits – extreme weather, civil unrest, deadly disease, horrific poverty and a variety of other life-threatening events. Their RUN FOR KIDS also raised approximately $400,000 to support children’s centers in many of the countries they visited.
THE 25,000 MILE LOVE STORY is exactly that…an inspirational love story about two people and their philosophy who believed in themselves. They had a genuine concern for the world’s impoverished children and were willing pay the price to achieve their almost impossible dream. Serge and Nicole Roethli journeyed in search of love, life, nature, and adventure and while finding all of those things, found themselves too.
