40 @ 40 – The project

40 @ 40 is a project where I will run 40 marathons and ultramarathons in 2016 and at the same time raise money for Cancerfonden. The number 40 came about since I turn 40 in 2016.

I started running in 2010, when my mother died of lungcancer. Before that I had lost my grandmother to this horrible disease, and when my uncle died in 2015, it was the straw that broke the camels back. I wanted to turn all this running into something creative, something that hopefully inspires people to both contribute finacially to my fundraising for cancer research, but I am also aiming to inspire more people to get out and move around more. If I can, so can you!

My goal with this particular project is to raise 1000 SEK for every race I complete, which would mean a total of 40000 SEK. We are all touched by this disease in one way or another, and we can all help!

To contribute to this project, you can either go to my page at Cancerfonden here or easily give money by sending a text message from your phone:
