Helga and Péter Pohl

Peter and I, we love running – says Helga. During my high school years in 1997 when I was in the middle of a dramatic weight loss I started pounding the streets in Székesfehérvár alone what became a habbit for my whole life. Then I moved to Budapest and the running was forgotten for a while..."

In 2007 I had a life crisis when I took to running again and that saved me from having panic attacks. I was running alone for a while but my darling Peter after 20 years of smoking joined me on the pavement. Our first steps were though, we hardly could move, but we never gave up. It took us a year when we were able to run 5K at one go without stopping. For me Peter - and for Peter - I am a true inspiration. Of course we did all the wrong things what every beginners do, we followed noone's advice, we took wrong turns but the flow did come at the end and we did not need to fight for air any longer, that lovely feeling flows in our lungs freely now...

In 2009 Peter got a result from his doctors that all the bad things disappeared from his lungs thanks to running and for this news we are forever grateful. Running is part of our every day's life, and with our running we do support charitable causes every step on the way. Our life changed with running, our health became number one priority and on the way we helped thousands and gained even many more friends....

We are grateful to say, we became much better people since we started running.


We depend on voluntary funding - any small amount - or kind support is highly appreciated. It takes so little to do so much...
