For Alan -- In 2009 New Zealander Mal Law made history by becoming the first person ever to run NZ s 7 mainland Great Walks in just 7 days a total distance of 360 kms in the longest week of his life. It was an adventure to honor the memory of his brother Alan, who died as a teenager from leukemia. In completing the 7in7 Mal raised more than $85,000 for the Leukemia & Blood Foundation of NZ and so helped make a huge difference to people suffering from this cruel illness.
Mal Law Quote:
I suspect that the experience of losing my big bro when I was just 9 years old has had quite an impact on my life. It s difficult to imagine that it hasn t shaped the person I am today for better or worse in some way or other. Perhaps this is what gives me the fight to take on big challenges? Who knows?
No matter. Alan, this one is for you bro
