On May 15, 2015, two members from The Walking Spondies participated in the LOVE Run in Taipei, Taiwan to help raise awareness for Ankylosing Spondylitis and associated diseases. Together, they logged over 30,000 steps during their race for our team.
David Mitchell from Scotland and Saou-Wen Su from Taiwan, along with over 3,000 other marathoners, began their race at 7am on Saturday morning. David completed the half-marathon 21km course in under two hours. He placed 37th out of 3020 participants. Woo-hoo, David! What an incredible accomplishment. During that time, he logged 22,052 steps for our team. Saou-Wen ran the 7km course and donated 7,797 steps. Way to go, Saou-Wen!
Saou-Wen and David also raised money for a number of Children’s Charities through the Love Run. They are honestly two of the kindest, sweetest men I know. Thank you both so much for your continuing support and assistance!
The Walking Spondies also held a group walk in April at CKS Memorial Hall (also David’s idea), which you can read about here.
