Kind-hearted soldier runs 30 ultramarathons in 30 days to help disabled arm wrestler
A kind-hearted soldier has delighted the internet after running 30 ultramarathons in 30 days to raise money for a disabled athlete.
Corporal Robert Kujawski fom the 1st Lebork mechanised battalion covered 51km a day for a month for disabled arm wrestler Dariusz Gabrynowicz whose dream is to compete in the world championship in Malaysia.
But after winning the IFA European Armwrestling Championship 2023 in May, Gabrynowicz who suffers from cerebral palsy found he didn’t have enough money to get to Malaysia for the Septmeber competition .
Hearing about his plight, Corporal Kujawski set up a fundraiser to help raise the cash.
Posting on zrzutka.pl, Kujawski said: “Mr. Dariusz's main source of income is a modest pension and his wife's income.
“This year I would like to support Mr. Dariusz by organizing a collection that will cover the costs of the trip to the World Championships and make his dreams come true.
Setting out on June 5, Kujawski spent the next month running the grueling 1,530km from Lębork to Słupsk.
In the final leg, he was joined by Gabrynowicz, crossing the finishing line on July 4 and raising 10,400zl.
Delighted Gabrynowicz later told reporters: “He is a small soldier with a big heart who is able to share his kindness with others.”
